Post Baccalaureate Certificate in Computer Science (Non - Credit)

The Post Baccalaureate Certificate in Computer Science (PBC) is a non- credit Program designed for people with a Bachelor of Science degree in another discipline, who wish to learn the core skills of Computer Science. Completion of the PBCC will provide opportunities to apply computational techniques in other areas, to change career paths towards computing, or to continue on to graduate student in Computer Science.

The PBC includes courses in programming, computer architecture and systems, some mathematics, and an elective chosen from the many courses available in the Department of Computer Science. 

By completing this one-year of full-time study, students will obtain the knowledge and skills at the heart of Computer Science, opening the doors to new and exciting opportunities.  

Pre-Requisites for the PBC program is a Bachelor Degree, Calculus I, and Computer Programming I (or equivalent). Credit can be given for prior study. At least 15 credits of PBC courses must be completed at the University of Miami.
