COSC 1301 - Introduction to Computing
Hours: 3
An introduction to computers, network communications, and information systems. This course provides the student with knowledge about hardware, software and data management systems. The student is provided experience with an operating system environment, application software including productivity tools, and the use of the internet to communicate and search for information. This course will not count toward a major or minor in computer science or computer information systems.

COSC 1337 - Programming Fundamentals II
Hours: 3
Review of control structures and data types with emphasis on structured data types. Applies the object-oriented programming paradigm, focusing on the definition and use of classes along with the fundamentals of object-oriented design. Includes basic analysis of algorithms, searching and sorting techniques, and an introduction to software engineering. Prerequisites: CSCI 151 or COSC 1436.

COSC 1436 - Introduction to Computer Science and Programming
Hours: 4
Introduces the fundamental concepts of structured programming. Topics include software development methodology, data types, control structures, functions, arrays, files, and the mechanics of running, testing, and debugging. This course assumes computer literacy (CSCI 126 / COSC 1301).

COSC 2325 - Machine Language and Computer Organization
Hours: 3
The concepts of assembly language and the machine representation of instructions and data of a modern digital computer are presented. Many of the fundamental concepts studied in this course include machine instructions, addressing, stack operations, subroutines and procedures, computer organization and architecture at the register level, and the micro-operation components of machine instructions. Students will perform assembly language programming exercises. Prerequisites: CSCI 151 or COSC 1436.

COSC 2336 - Data Structures and Algorithms
Hours: 3
Further applications of programming techniques, introducing the fundamental concepts of data structures and algorithms. Topics include recursion, fundamental data structures (including stacks, queues, linked lists, hash tables, trees, and graphs), and algorithmic analysis. Prerequisites: CSCI 152 or COSC 1337.
