Hesston College offers two degrees associated with Computer Science and Computer Information Technology. Earning a degree at Hesston College adds an important line to your growing resume. If you earn a transfer degree, you will also take courses most four-year colleges and universities expect you to have on your transcript.

Associate of Science Degree (AS)

If you major in Computer Science, you will earn the Associate of Science (AS) degree. This degree allows you to fit in the additional science and math courses required by the upper level Computer Science program at your next school.

Associate of Arts Degree (AA)

If you major in Computer Information Technology and plan to transfer to a four-year school, you will earn the Associate of Arts (AA) degree. This degree adds the extra writing, social science, and humanities courses required by most four-year schools in the non-science computer degree programs.

Can't Make Up Your Mind?

No problem! To keep all your options open, choose the 4-year transfer program you are most interested in. If you like math and science, consider Computer Science. If you prefer business, consider Computer Information Technology.

Your advisor will be happy to help you work through the options. Just ask!

Hesston College courses are placed to fit the schedules of both traditional students and working professionals.

Besides program courses, your degree will include classes in communication, math, Bible, social science, humanities, natural science, and fitness and wellness.
