Degree Options

Computer Science
Computers are an integral part of most human activities and professions. Therefore, a wide variety of career opportunities are available to the computer science professionals who are commonly referred to as computer scientists.

Computer scientists are responsible for analyzing requirements, planning, developing high-level design, writing, and testing the program that delivers the expected results. Computer scientists may be involved with support and maintenance of the solutions.

Computer scientists are employed in all industries such as manufacturing, finance, service, retail, gaming, and others. Typically, computer scientists work with other professionals in order to develop solutions that meet business and customer requirements.

Computer science specialties include:

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Computer vision
  • Database
  • Graphics and animation
  • Embedded systems
  • Networking
  • Operating Systems
  • Program languages and compilers
  • Robotics
Computer Science (AST2)
This is a suggested program for the first two years of a four-year Computer Science program. These lower-division course requirements will vary depending on the math and English placement at Clark College, and on the requirements of the four-year institution to which you transfer. It is critical that you work with a Computer Science and Engineering faculty advisor to ensure your program will give you the maximum benefit when you transfer. Additional courses are needed to satisfy graduation requirements for the Associate in Science degree.

Program Outcomes
Program outcomes are overarching skills that are emphasized and reinforced throughout several courses in a specific program; they are measurable statements that define what students should know or be able to do by the end of a certificate or degree at Clark College. After successful completion of this program, students will be able to:
  • Demonstrate understanding of the derivative as instantaneous rate of change and the definite integral as a limit of a Riemann sum in applied problems.
  • Analyze and solve multi-step problems using techniques through single-variable calculus, and communicate the results.
  • Apply fundamental principles and relationships from the Natural Sciences to analyze technological or scientific problems.
  • Acquire scientific and technological information from appropriate sources to examine issues, claims or situations.
  • Apply scientific and technological knowledge and methodologies to creatively solve technological or scientific problems.
  • Communicate with various audiences using a variety of methods.
  • Demonstrate progress toward healthier behaviors.
  • Analyze, interpret, and evaluate works and ideas in the Humanities within appropriate global and historical contexts.
  • Obtain, evaluate, and ethically use information.
  • Analyze patterns of power, privilege and inequality.
  • Evaluate, analyze, and explain events, behaviors, and institutions using perspectives and methods in the Social Sciences.
