Computer Science (Post-Baccalaureate Certificate)

Marymount’s post-baccalaureate certificate in Computer Science is designed to prepare individuals for entry-level positions in software development. It also provides the preparatory work necessary to enter Marymount’s Master of Science in Information Technology’s Software Engineering track.

This program is for students who have previously earned a bachelor’s degree in a field other than Computer Science.

Students who begin the certificate program in the fall semester can complete the program in one year, beginning in late August and finishing in late July.

Admission Requirements: In addition to meeting Universitywide requirements for post-baccalaureate certificate admission, the student must demonstrate knowledge of high school algebra and trigonometry. Students with insufficient mathematics preparation will be advised to take appropriate undergraduate courses to prepare for the certificate.
