Artificial intelligence. Bioinformatics. Computer theory. Computer science is a wide-ranging field of study, with career opportunities for people who are looking to the future.

Collin College's computer science courses will prepare you for a bachelor's degree program in computer science or computer software engineering. Learn the fundamentals of programming with specialization in C++ or Java and make the future your own.

There are two tracks offered in the Field of Study (C++ Track and Java Track). Both tracks cover the same fundamental theory and material but use different languages.  

A Field of Study is a set of courses that will transfer and apply to a corresponding bachelor’s - level degree at a Texas college or university. Both the Field of Study and the Core Curriculum courses are transferrable for full academic credit to any public college or university in Texas. Students who complete the Field of Study block of courses will earn a certificate in that Field of Study.

Did you know that you can also earn an AA or AS degree in addition to the Field of Study certificate? Contact an academic advisor today to learn more about how to develop an educational plan that is right for you.
