University rank #351 (WUR) Denver, CO, United States
The Bachelor of Arts in Applied Computing (BA in AC) provides a quality education for the serious computer user. It complements the Department's Bachelor of Science in Computer Science by providing a program which combines collaboration with other departments and an applications-oriented emphasis.


The BA in AC is a suitable degree for many collaborative programs within the University. This major was developed in consultation with the Department of Mass Communication, which, jointly with the Department of Art and Art History and this Department, has offered the Bachelor of Arts in Digital Media Studies. A minor or double major in digital media studies and applied computing complement each other perfectly.

The BA in AC would be ideal for students in graphics arts and electronic publishing, and would provide an appropriate foundation for a student who wishes to pursue a career in the emerging field of education technology. A graduate with the BA in AC would be very attractive in the data processing unit of large financial, banking, or insurance institutions, as a network or systems administrator in a similar firm, or as a World Wide Web designer/programmer. Holders of the BA in AC degree would also be well suited to continue in any number of specialized Master's or Certificate programs in fields as diverse as video and graphics production, fashion design, telecommunications, instructional technology or management information systems.
