Having the skill set of a computer programmer is a superpower: everything is run by computers and it is the programmers who tell them what to do.

But what exactly is computer science? Computer science is the study and development of computer technology.

In today's marketplace, there are many roads that lead to careers in game development, app creation, web app design, software engineering, information assurance, and cryptography. A computer science degree is the most traditional, but with good reason, since it provides a strong foundation in the fundamentals at the heart of computing. Make no mistake: this is a challenging field, but the possibilities are limitless.

If you wish to transfer to a four-year institution, Casper College's computer science associate degree is stepping stone toward that goal. Our curriculum closely follows the same curriculum as the University of Wyoming. The majority of classes are typical of the required classes for most four-year schools across the United States.
