American National College's Associate of Applied Science in Computer Science is based on an intensive curriculum focused on computer and technological areas: key theoretical concepts and practical applications; hardware and software; computing needs and solutions. Sub-fields explored include, among others, information systems, databases, analysis and design, software structures, computer graphics, operating systems, languages and diverse applications. Degree candidates must demonstrate professional competency in programming fundamentals, computer organization, technological architecture, networks and operating systems, algorithms, theory and computational mathematics. They must be prepared to apply computer competency to practical issues and to manifest a knowledge-base that allows for substantial adaptability
Career Opportunities: The successful graduate will be aptly prepared to assume a wide-range of entry-level (and, with some former experience, mid-level) computer professional positions in technology-centered organizations, in the corporate sector, in industry, in government, in other professional arenas or, alternatively, to assume enhanced (CS-focused) responsibilities within the context of a currently-held position. Those who so elect will be academically prepared to pursue studies in Computer Science, Computer Engineering or in a wide array of inter-related or co-dependent disciplines.
