Connected Degree

Computing and Information Science

to B.A. Computer Science

An opportunity to gain an associate degree from Delaware Tech and a bachelor's degree from the University of Delaware.

YOUR PATH TO A BACHELOR'S DEGREE

Delaware Tech has established agreements with four-year colleges and universities that connect Delaware Tech associate degree programs with bachelor's degree programs to create smooth transfer opportunities for you. These Connected Degree programs enable you to complete your associate degree and then transfer to a four-year degree program as a junior.

THE CONNECTED DEGREE 2 + 2 CURRICULUM

Delaware Tech's Computing and Information Science program provides students with the foundational computing, analytical, communication, collaborative, and mathematics skills at the associate degree level for transfer to a bachelor's degree institution to earn a degree in preparation for a career in computer-related fields. Graduates will have the fundamental skills necessary to design computing and information technology solutions so that they are prepared to be successful upon transfer to a bachelor's degree program. The courses for the University of Delaware's B.A. (BACS) degree and the B.S. (BSCS) degree in Computer Science are the same for the freshman and sophomore years, branching off into their respective emphasis for the last two years. The BSCS curriculum emphasizes the more technical aspects of the major, while the BACS is a more flexible liberal arts program, with fewer required courses, and an opportunity to plan your own upper level study in consultation with an advisor. This program is especially good for students double- or triple- majoring, or students who desire a technical undergrad degree before attempting a professional degree (law, medical, business).

VALUE FOR YOU

By completing your associate degree at Delaware Tech, you'll receive excellent instruction in small classes at a campus close to home. Delaware Tech's affordable tuition can reduce the overall cost of your college education, making the completion of your bachelor's degree more manageable.
