The Associate of Science in Computer Science equips students with the required technical skills and provides an introduction to application development, theory and design for computer systems. CCU’s Associate of Science in Computer Science degree program teaches students to develop algorithms using computational theory and the use of operating systems, compiler design, and software engineering with applied projects and analysis. Further program areas pull from computer science, computer information technology, data engineering, and information systems management. As a foundation for the curriculum, students study mathematics, computation and science, and develop a strong framework in logic design and programming. In addition to gaining foundational knowledge in the key areas of the field, the program also shows the relationship between computer science and Christianity.

The Associate of Science in Computer Science requires completion of the following 60 credit hours:
General Education (30 hours)
Computer Science Major (25 hours)
Electives (5 hours)

Elective Requirements (5 credit hours)

Complete 5 additional elective credits.
