Junior Programmer: Pathways Certificate

This is a new certificate based on three existing CIS courses: CIS 122, CIS 133CS, and CIS 233CS. (12 credits)

Students will be able to earn this certification and then continue seamlessly on to our other CIS programs. Those who are already employed in the profession that want to upgrade their programming skills may also benefit from this certificate. This certificate may also lead to entry-level programmer jobs.
