ASSOCIATE IN SCIENCES DEGREE WITH A FIELD OF STUDY IN COMPUTER SCIENCE

This plan is an official Field of Study Degree approved
the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.


Offered at Brookhaven and Richland Colleges

Degree Code: AS.FS.COMP.SCI.12

This degree plan is designed to meet the needs of students who plan to major in Computer Science and transfer to a four-year college or university. The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board approves the field of study in Computer Science included in this degree. This degree plan will constitute a semester credit hour transfer block to any public Texas four-year college or university with a Computer Science Major. Transferring students shall not be required to repeat courses transferred as part of the field of study curriculum. Completion of the field of study curriculum shall not prevent a receiving institution from requiring additional lower-division courses that may be necessary for specific degree programs. Because of the complexity of requirements, student must plan very carefully and work with an advisor/counselor.

In order to be eligible to receive this AS degree, a student must:

  1. Complete a minimum of 63 credit hours including the courses listed below;
  2. Earn a grade of "C" or better in English 1301 and the selected college-level mathematics course;
  3. Receive a GPA (2) of at least 2.00 ("C");
  4. Meet all Texas Success Initiative (TSI) standards and course prerequisites; and
  5. Complete at least 25% of the credit hours required for graduation through instruction by the college awarding the degree.

It is recommended that students complete the math sequence, physics sequence, and computer science sequence at the same institution to reduce the likelihood of potential gaps in the curriculum.
