The Coding Boot Camp Graduate Certificate provides a strategy for graduate students looking to change or accelerate their careers. Students will learn to think like professional coders and write effective, efficient code. Depending on previous coding experience, students will take either 4 or 6 graduate programming courses offered from the actual MSCSIT degree program at Sacred Heart University. The advantage of this certificate is that all courses taken for graduate credit can be applied to the full Master’s degree. The need for effective programmers is growing rapidly and this certificate can be completed by any student with a Bachelor’s degree in any field.
The program requires the student to complete a minimum of twelve (12) semester credit hours of course work with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0. There are two prerequisites to the certificate: CS 500 and CS 501 (see below).
Prerequisite Courses | 6 credits
- CS 500 Introduction to Structured Programming 3 CR
- CS 501 Data Structures 3 CR
Required Courses | 12 credits
- CS 504 Introduction to Scripting (Python) 3 CR
- CS 551 OOP with Java 3 CR
- CS 552 Windows Interface Design (VB.Net) 3 CR

All course credits earned in a certificate program may be applied to the master’s program.
