Return to Academic Programs Return to: Academic Programs

Academic Program Code: 149

The Computer Programming program provides students with the courses needed to seek employment as a computer programmer.

The employment outlook for careers in this growing, dynamic, technologically rich field is likely to remain strong. Students seeking work immediately upon graduation from GRCC should expect to find employment in smaller organizations or in supporting roles of larger organizations. Students expecting long-term employment in programming and beyond should plan on a minimum of a four-year degree, with career opportunities thereafter dependent on job performance and perhaps additional education.

Strict adherence to the ethics of computer usage is expected of all Computer Information Systems students.
