The Computer Science transfer program includes two A.S. degree choices: Computer Science and the Information Science Concentration. Students are encouraged to see an advisor to select correct transfer courses because transfer requirements change periodically.
Graduates of the Computer Science A.S. will be able to:
Analyze user requirements to do problem solving
Design algorithms to solve complex mathematical or scientific problems
Select algorithms based on a comparison of their time and space complexity requirements
Implement those algorithms in a high-level programming language, such as Java
Utilize object-oriented methodology to write efficient code
General Education Courses
The list of general education courses appears in the General Education List. Some programs recommend or require specific courses to fulfill general education requirements. Please check your program’s sequence of study for this information.
Sequence of Study - Computer Science A.S.
Below are the required courses for your program arranged in a suggested sequence. Please note that the sequence does not include developmental coursework. See Academic Preparation for the developmental course sequence if applicable to you. This is a calculus-based program. Students may require prerequisite math courses prior to beginning coursework in the program.
The two Social Science general education courses must be from different disciplines.
Credit earned at any public institution in the state shall be transferable to any other institution if the:
Credit is from a college or university parallel course or program;
Grades in the block of courses transferred average 2.00 or higher; and
Acceptance of the credit is consistent with the policies of the receiving institution governing students following the same program. Refer to ARTSYS at artweb.usmd.edu and the receiving institution’s catalog to select transferable courses.
