The College offers a variety of computing science programs of study with a significant component of academic courses that carry transfer status with the universities. Graduates of our programs can always build on what they know and may take advanced courses from Langara or a university once they have completed the necessary prerequisites. These programs have many common courses in the first and second terms which allow students to enter the Arts and Science Program in Computer Science without committing to one specific option. We specialize in both academic studies and hands-on skills development by teaching in both the classroom and the lab. The Associate of Science Degree in Computer Science allows students to transfer easily to the third year of Computer Science programs at major BC universities.


These courses are intended as guidelines. Speak to your guidance counsellor to see what courses are offered at your school.
    Applicants are required to have successfully completed a BC secondary program (Grade 12) or the equivalent, or be at least 19 years of age by the first day of the first semester of attendance, or have successfully completed an A.B.E. (Adult Basic Education) or G.E.D. (General Educational Development) program.

    Additional Admission Requirements:
      To be admitted and participate in the Co-operative Education Option, you must: be enrolled in 3 program courses (minimum 9 credits) or more, not including EXPE 2300 (formerly BUSM 2300/COOP 2300);
      Achieve and maintain a minimum GPA of 2.6 in each term; successfully complete an employability assessment interview with a Co-operative Education Officer; and complete EXPE 2300 (formerly BUSM 2300/COOP 2300) with a "C" or higher.

      If you are planning to take the Co-operative Education Option in your program, now is the time you should be enrolled in the COOP 2300 (formerly BUSM 2300) Employment Strategies for Current Labour Markets course. A co-op option is available for almost all of our programs, and also for Arts and Science university-transfer students. If you have any questions, call 604.323.5480 or 604.323.5492.
