Join the growing IT profession

The Program Development/Software Development Bachelor's Degree specialization at Eastern Florida State College prepares students for entry-level positions involving general computer software applications.

Potential career positions include Software Developer, Computer Support Specialist, Database Administrator and Web Developer.
Students will gain a fundamental understanding of data structures and modern programming languages, and demonstrate the ability to design and write quality computer programs that are well organized and documented.

Designed with the working student in mind, classes are offered in flexible formats to include day, evening, online and and blended courses that are part classroom and part online. The degree is also Financial Aid eligible. Students are admitted to the program in the January and August terms only following the general Bachelor's Degree online application process.

Students wishing to enter this program will need to earn a grade of C or higher in the following prerequisites that are not presently part of the EFSC Associate Degree programs.

  • MAC 1311 - Calculus 1
  • PHY 2048 - General Physics 1
  • COP 2334 - C++ Programming or other suitable Programming Course

Students with an A.S degree may have taken these prerequisite courses, but if not they will be required and an advisor can help with course planning.

Students entering the Computer BAS program with an Associate in Arts (A.A.) degree may be required to take additional math and science courses (see the prerequisite list above), plus technical elective credit hours which should be selected in collaboration with an advisor. An Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree does not meet the minimum eligibility requirement for entry into this program. AAS degree holders who intend to transfer into the BAS program should consult with an academic advisor to review coursework and determine the best transfer options.

A Bachelor's Degree advisor can help you plan your personalized course of study.
