PCAS courses support LSA graduates becoming conversational programmers. Conversational programmers understand the task of software development, know the language and specialty terms of programmers, and can facilitate communication between software developers and other parts of an organization. Learning to use powerful computing, including programming, has significant economic benefit for LSA graduates.
Our course code is COMPFOR which stands for COMPuting FOR.
Student Project Examples
The short video illustrates the concepts students learned in Fall 2022. Most of the students had no prior programming experience. Students learned how to use computation to create pictures, sounds, videogames, and language, and wrote programs with a focus on purpose and meaning.
