Computer Science (AST2)
Academic Plans, known as programs, include a overview description and a summary of program requirements. You can search the online catalog via the the Academic Plan links on the right for a desired program or a specific course information.
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 may be needed to satisfy graduation requirements for the Associate in Science degree.

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 an instantaneous rate of change and the definite integral as a limit of a sum.
- Apply fundamental principles and relationships from the Natural Sciences to analyze technological or scientific problems.
- Apply scientific and technological knowledge and methodologies to creatively solve technological or scientific problems.
- Demonstrate progress toward healthier behaviors. (GE)
- Obtain, evaluate, and ethically use information. (GE)
- Acquire scientific and technological information from appropriate sources to examine issues, claims or situations.
- Analyze and solve multi-step problems using techniques through single-variable calculus.
- Articulate well-considered ideas and written claims to an academic audience, using effective rhetorical techniques, properly credited evidence, and a command of Standard English. (GE)
- Interpret the human experience, within appropriate global and historical contexts, through evaluation, analysis, creation, or performance. (GE)
- Evaluate, analyze, and explain events, behaviors, and institutions using perspectives and methods in the Social Sciences. (GE)
- Analyze patterns of power, privilege, and inequity in the United States. (GE)
- Analyze and interpret quantitative information presented verbally, graphically, numerically, and/or symbolically. (GE)
- Apply communication theory to demonstrate effective oral communication skills.(GE)
- Demonstrate and clearly explain an effective strategy to solve a quantitative problem. (GE)
