Liberal Arts & Science: Mathematics ( A.S. )
This program is designed for students who intend to transfer to a baccalaureate program in mathematics, mathematics education (secondary), or a related applied field. Graduates of the program should be able to complete the baccalaureate degree in two years of additional full-time study. The program includes liberal arts courses to provide a broadbased general education, plus computer science and science courses to augment the extensive mathematics component. The mathematics core develops knowledge in three basic areas of mathematics learning: proof and theory, algorithms, and applications. The computer component develops important ancillary skills.
Information Technology ( A.A.S. Degree )
This program leads to the Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree and is designed for those who intend to seek immediate employment in Information Technology. The program includes foundation in general education courses (for example, social sciences, humanities, and electives) plus the business in mathematics courses necessary to augment the extensive computer courses. By judicious use of electives along with active advisement from departmental faculty, students can tailor the degree program to meet their individual needs and industry requirements for a particular area of Information Technology. Topics included for study are object-oriented programming, web programming, relational database management and development, Visual Basic .NET programming, and Windows Server and Linux Administration. Some students transfer to baccalaureate degree programs in Information Technology or related areas.
Computer Science ( A.S. Degree )
This program leads to the Associate in Science ( A.S. ) degree and is designed for those who intend to transfer to a baccalaureate program oriented in the design of hardware and software of computer systems. The program stresses computer, mathematics, and science courses which are appropriate for transfer to a baccalaureate program.
Cybersecurity (A.S. Degree)
This program introduces students to the world of
cyber and information security.
Students will gain a fundamental understanding of the security triad, the seven domains of information technology infrastructure, and the three types of security controls. As students continue through the program, they develop a diverse technical skillset and the foundational knowledge needed for future success. Hard and soft skills will be introduced and reinforced throughout the program. Students will develop technical skills via hands-on labs, develop written and communication skills in the form of policy and report writing, and develop a sound foundation for learning that can be applied in further study or in a career.
