CSCU Pathway Transfer A.A. degree programs are for Connecticut Community College students who wish to transfer to one of the four Connecticut State Universities or Charter Oak College. Upon transfer, students are guaranteed full junior status and can complete a bachelor’s degree in their major without losing any credits or being required to take any extra credits.
The Computer Science Pathway A.A. degree is a rigorous calculus-based program which provides students with a broad background in the underlying disciplines of computer science including: the fundamentals of computer programming; database theory and design; digital systems including digital logic, computer organization & architecture and assembly language; and client-side web development.
Students will also acquire a comprehensive educational background in mathematics, physics and general education, designed to develop and enhance their critical thinking, problem analysis and resolution skills.
Students planning to transfer to baccalaureate institutions should consult with an advisor (Richard Gnall) regarding the requirements of these institutions and transferability of courses.
Students who wish to enter the workforce immediately after completing their associate degree should consider the Internet Programming Technology degree.
With this degree you will be able to transfer to the following majors:
At Central Connecticut State University: Computer Science, B.S. - Alternative Program
Computer Science, B.S. - Honors
At Eastern Connecticut State University: Computer Science, B.S.
At Southern Connecticut State University: Computer Science, B.S. - General Program
At Western Connecticut State University: Computer Science, B.S.
At Charter Oak State College: General Studies: Computer Science Studies Concentration, B.A.
Students may enroll in this program full- or part-time. Courses are offered during daytime and/or evening hours. Some courses are not offered every semester. For students who don’t meet the math prerequisite requirements for either the math or computer programming/networking courses in the program, MCC offers a wide range of preparatory courses.
When planning their schedule, students should note that some courses are offered only once a year, in either the Fall or Spring semester, but not both.
- MAT*287 Discrete Math Spring Only
- EET*252 Digital Electronics Spring Only
Students should consult with a computer science faculty advisor (Richard Gnall) to plan their program and schedule of classes, and to discuss required course prerequisites.
