Program Code: CI

Concentration Code: CIX

Program Goals Statement

The Computer Science Transfer option prepares students to finish their education in Computer Science at a four-year institution. The CIS faculty worked closely with the Computer Science faculty at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, and the resulting program provides a seamless transition to Computer Science at UMass Dartmouth. The program also parallels the computer science offerings at other local colleges and universities.

Program information

  • The first two years of a degree in Computer Science can be done within this option at BCC.
  • Transfer credit for any Computer Information Systems (CIS or CIT) course must be approved by the CI Department Chair or by a full-time CI faculty member.
Note: Students may be required to obtain and use specific hardware, operating systems, or applications.

Recommendations

  • Students should talk with the Transfer office for information about colleges.

Elective Recommendations

After BCC

  • Recent graduates have transferred to Bridgewater State College, Rhode Island College, Roger Williams University, Bryant University, University of Massachusetts Amherst and University of Massachusetts Dartmouth.
  • BCC participates in the statewide MassTransfer program and has developed many program-to-program transfer articulation agreements which guarantee admission and credit transfer. For a complete listing of eligible MassTransfer programs and current BCC articulation agreements, visit the Transfer Affairs website at www.BristolCC.edu/transfer
