Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Plans

The program provides a computer science foundation in the mathematical and scientific principles underlying computing and information technology, along with hands-on instruction in developing effective design and analysis skills related to computing systems. Career paths for Computer Science include software developer, systems administrator, systems analyst, and applications developer. A full-time student can complete this Associate of Science (AS) degree in two years. This degree prepares students to transfer to a four-year university to complete the second half of a Bachelor of Science (BS) in Computer Science. To be successful, a student should have strong math, computer and keyboarding skills, and be detail-oriented.

Notes


  • **CSC 1060  and CSC 1061  must be taught in a specific programming language (i.e., Java or C++) to be accepted for transfer by the receiving institution. Please consult with an academic advisor when registering for these courses. CSC 1060 ​ has a prerequisite of CSC 1019  or equivalent.
  • All courses required for this degree must be completed with a “C” or better to be considered for transfer to another Colorado institution. Transferability of courses to colleges or universities outside of Colorado is determined by the receiving institution.
  • In order to meet program requirements, students registered for ENG 1021  or ENG 1031  must also register for ENG 0094  unless they can demonstrate otherwise meeting the ENG 0094  standard through assessment testing, prior college coursework, or recent High School coursework. See an Advisor for details.
  • Please refer to the Statewide Transfer Articulation Agreement for Computer Science on the CDHE website (https://highered.colorado.gov/transfer-degrees) for specific information on the required courses and elective credits accepted by each of the four-year institutions.
  • Recommended courses are listed below for certain electives; consult with the Academic Advising Office (advising@arapahoe.edu or 303.797.5664) or the Sociology Department for additional recommendations.
