Computer Science spans the broad range from theory through programming to cutting-edge development of computing solutions. Computer science offers a foundation that permits graduates to adapt to new technologies and new ideas. The work of computer scientists falls into three categories: 1.) designing and building software; 2.) developing effective ways to solve computing problems such as storing information in databases, sending data over networks or providing new approaches to security problems; and 3.) devising new and better ways of using computers and addressing particular challenges in areas such as robotics, computer vision, or digital forensics. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports, more IT jobs are available in the United States today than at the height of the dot.com bubble and are expected to be among the fastest-growing occupations over the next decade. Computer science requires solid preparation and study in mathematics.

Transfer Options
The Tennessee Transfer Pathway (TTP) degree is designed to create a smooth transition to all public universities offering a Baccalaureate degree in this major by guaranteeing the transferability of all courses. For transfer to other four-year institutions, contact an advisor at the senior institution.  Note:  There are to be no course substitutions in this program.

All students graduating with a degree from VSCC are required to take the Educational Testing Service Proficiency Profile (ETSP) to meet graduation requirements. More information can be found at http://www.volstate.edu/Testing/Services.php.
