Programming - A.A. Degree (Transfer)
This associate transfer degree program provides a core foundation in information technology with a strong focus on programming languages.
This curriculum is a guide for transferring to a four-year institution, such as the University of Baltimore, Johns Hopkins University, or the University of Maryland University College to complete a bachelor’s degree in Information Technology. Students are advised to check the requirements of the major at the institutions to which they intend to transfer.
As a graduate, you should be able to:
- Demonstrate competence in programming, analysis and design principles, data structures, testing, and debugging techniques.
- Identify, understand, evaluate, and apply ethical reasoning in business practices.

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.
