PCC's Computer Science program is a two-year transfer program for students who desire a four-year degree in computer science. Students complete a minimum of 97 credit hours at PCC and then transfer to a four-year institution to complete the final two years of their degree.
With PCC’s computer science program, you can work on just about anything dealing with computers: animating computer games, designing software or anything else. Plus, with a burgeoning job market – and since almost every employer can use people with computer science degrees – a career in computer science is always in demand.
Please note: PCC does not offer a specific degree in Computer Science. However, talk with an advisor if you are interested in earning an Associate Degree while studying Computer Science and preparing to transfer to a four year institution.
Computer science is a career field that all different kinds of people work in – from graphic designers to programmers to software developers and many others. This field mixes creativity with technology, problem solving and team interaction. So no matter what you’re interested in, computer science can be a real option for you.
With a degree in computer science, your future can take you around the world, either in-person or "virtually" as you’ll be creating new technologies and new ways of doing things that will be used around the globe.
