Computer Science is the study of techniques to represent, store and manipulate information within a computer information system. Computer programming is a major component of such study, and is the focus of most of the CS courses listed below. If you are thinking of pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science at a university, you should take CS 210 or CS 142 because success in these classes tends to be a good indicator of success in a computer science program. Consult the university’s catalog to determine which of the two courses best fits the requirements of that institution. If you are thinking of working with computers but aren’t sure you want a four-year degree, see the Computer Information Systems (CIS) or Multimedia and Interactive Technology (MIT) sections of this catalog.
