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 University of Delaware's B. S. in Computer Science curriculum emphasizes software applications and computer theory with the goal that students learn how computers are used to solve real-life problems. Majors develop excellent programming skills as they build a solid foundation in the theory and practice of computer science. The concentration component allows majors to pursue related interests in line with their career goals. Graduates are prepared to pursue careers in software development, software engineering, systems analysis, and marketing in a variety of industries and businesses. Some students go on to graduate study in top graduate programs.
