CS Program

  1. Jun 17, 2008 #1
    Hi all,

    I just recently graduated from college with a degree in physics. I'm not interested in pursuing a graduate degree in physics. I like computers and would like to study them, but I don't have much programming experience or any CS courses under my belt. I was wondering if anybody knew of a CS program that is specifically designed to teach non CS graduates with a science degree about computer science. Thanks.

    If you just want to learn the basics of computer science, you can find quite a bit online.

    Click this link:

    for a solid overview of computer science concepts. Also, teach yourself a programming language. I'd recommend Java for starters because it is very user friendly and easy to acquire free software for.
