Bachelor of Science in Applied Computer Science (BSACS)
The BSACS is a practice-oriented computer science degree,
aimed less at large-scale software development and more towards production of
smaller scope software systems and programming.
As a BSACS graduate, you would be well-prepared to work as a
programmer in applied contexts, such as creating, organizing, and manipulating
information. Some hot career paths
- bioinformatics and applied science tool development
- web development
- game and media development
- information technology
- software testing

BS in Applied Computer Science vs. BS in Computer Science- Which is right for you?
The BSACS program is a good choice if you’re seeking a
career in smaller scale, hands-on applied programming.
The BSCS program is accredited and provides excellent training
if you’re seeking a career in complex software engineering with maximum career
flexibility or if you want to pursue an advanced degree in Computer Science.
