Why does HCC offer several associate transfer degree programs in programming? What is the difference between majoring in Computer Science, Information Systems Management - Programming/Technical, and Information Technology - Programming?
If you are transferring to UMBC, you must take both semesters of C++ at HCC. All of the other schools also strongly urge you to take both sequential semesters of introduction and advance level programming language at the same school. At statewide meetings, both two- and four-year schools agree on the topics that need to be covered by the end of the second C++ or second Java course, but the sequences may differ. Thus, taking one course at one school and then transferring might cause you to miss an important topic or two.
