Associate in Arts (AA) or
Associate of Science (AS-Track 2)

Students who obtain a four-year degree in computer science will obtain a foundation that permits them to adapt to new technologies and new ideas in software design, in the solution of computing problems, and in the use of computers to address emerging challenges.

Olympic College offers courses to prepare students to complete a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science at a four-year institution. Careful planning is essential. The courses required to major in computer science vary, depending on the institution and the program chosen. At some institutions, admission into the Computer Science, major is highly selective. Students should work closely with an advisor at the baccalaureate institution they plan to transfer to before analyzing their education plan.

In preparation for transfer, most students will complete the AA degree. In rare cases or when considering the related fields of Computer or Electrical Engineering, students may choose to complete the AS-Track 2 degree.
