Post-Baccalaureate Program in Computer Science
Since the fall of 1982, Mills has provided a certificate program in computer science for college graduates, especially women, who intend to pursue employment, advancement, or graduate studies in computer science and need to acquire the proper background.
The Mills post-baccalaureate program has two tracks for students with different goals. The post-baccalaureate certificate program, for students interested in entering the professional computing workforce, has no programming or mathematics prerequisites. The advanced-degree preparatory track is for students whose goal is further graduate study (MS or PhD) in computer science and has the same special admission requirements as the MA program in interdisciplinary computer science. This small program offers support and personal attention while students study computer science. It also provides substantial opportunity for hands-on experience with programming on a variety of computer systems. Each student's course of study is tailored to individual needs and includes independent study options.
