The Programming Boot Camp is an introductory sequence in the Career Change Certificate designed for those who have no prior programming experience. It is a set of two accelerated computer programming courses that meets 4 times per week and requires 8-10 hours of work per week outside of class.

Prospective students are encouraged to look through the boot camp syllabi and contact the Prof. Sheila Oh ( to discuss their particular circumstances.
