CS Career Outlook
The field of Computer Science is expected to grow by 12% in the next decade. An Associate Degree can provide an opening for students to get entry-level positions in companies, government and educational institutions. Even if students don't have work place experience they can always take certification exams or get internships to demonstrate knowledge or experience to employers. It is important for Computer Science students to get both the work experience and knowledge while continuing their education. This places the student in a far better position to get a job and start their career.
In the Assoicate of Science degree in Computer Science the foundation is mathematics. A student with higher mathematics skill and knowledge tend to have better success in their career. And so, Calculus I and II are required for the Associate of Science degree in Computer Science. But, students are required to take the prerequisites College Algebra (MATH 1314) and Pre Calculus (MATH 2312) before taking Calculus. This will allow students to improve any deficiencies or weaknesses in mathematics.
