What is a Post-Baccalaureate Degree?
A post-baccalaureate (post-bacc) degree is a specialized bachelor’s degree program designed for students who have already acquired at least one other bachelor’s degree. Post-baccalaureate programs are typically offered on an accelerated schedule and are tailored to preparing students for graduate school or a specific career.
Our online Post-Bacc in Computer Science degree offers students an accelerated path to a bachelor’s degree in just 45 credit hours. Upon graduation, you will receive a Bachelor of Science in Applied Computer Science diploma from CU Boulder’s prestigious College of Engineering and Applied Science.
Post-baccalaureate computer science degrees generally impart students with a more comprehensive knowledge base than certificate programs. Post-bacc degrees also provide a convenient pathway for those looking to earn a master’s degree in computer science.
