Message from Leadership
This week’s Thursday’s Byte continues with the staged approach to working towards your undergraduate degree. Once the Foundations Certificate and the Fundamental Certificate have been completed, students are ready to declare their Depths of Study (DOS) and determine which STC degree will be earned. There are four Depths of Study areas – Cybersecurity, Data Science, Information Systems, and Information Technology. Each DOS consists of six five-credit courses (30 hours) distinct to the specific degree pathway. Bachelor of Science in Applied Computing students select their 30 credits from the other 4 degrees.
Each six-course series is available as a Certificate in Advanced Computing.
An additional ten credits are available to students to complete several different ways.
Option 1: Ten credits can be applied to two courses from another DOS.
Option 2: Take one DOS course outside of your ‘major’ and complete a five-credit internship.
Option 3: Repeat the Internship option.
Next week we will begin the review of the individual DOS courses related to the Bachelor of Science Cybersecurity (formerly known as BSISEC).
