Associate in Science in Computer Science for Transfer (AS-T)

Division: Math & Engineering

Students completing the Associate in Science in Computer Science for Transfer will be able to seamlessly transfer in the CSU system to pursue a baccalaureate degree in Computer Science. Students completing this degree will have an introductory foundation for the field of Computer Science through the study of object-oriented programming, discrete math and the functionality, organization, and implementation of computer systems. The student will acquire the knowledge and skill sets necessary for success in a baccalaureate-level Computer Science program.

Program Outcomes

  • Demonstrate the skills to plan, create, test, and debug computer programs using procedural programming or Object-Oriented Programming techniques.
  • Demonstrate the ability to identify and understand the basic terminology used in Computer Science and how computer hardware and software work together to produce desired results.
  • Demonstrate the skills and training for employment and/or transfer to a four-year college or university.

Transfer & Career Opportunities

This Associate in Science in Computer Science for Transfer (AS-T) Degree is intended to meet the lower division requirements for Computer Science for all CSU campuses. Students planning to transfer to institutions other than the CSU are encouraged to consult and a COS counselor for program planning and course selection. Most common career opportunities with a baccalaureate degree include: technical and financial industries, academics and research, computer and statistical fields (many other career options require an advanced degree).
