Technology is all around you and ingrained into just about every facet of your life. It has grown by leaps and bounds over the last 20 years and there’s no indication that that trend is going to stop anytime soon.

To lead the charge the world needs programmers. People with critical thinking skills, analytical minds and a touch of creativity to build the next generation of technological marvels. Code is everywhere. Regardless of your projected career path (medical sciences, criminal justice, business management, etc.) the tools that you use to do the things that you do, the software that helps make that happen is going be the work of programmers. Code is all around us and it would benefit you to know a little bit about it.

The programming/mobile development degree includes a little bit of everything in an effort to help you find your interest and help you develop your passion. From simple software development to full stack development, from database management to game development, you’ll see it all, working through project based coursework in a highly collaborative environment. With an associate’s degree in hand you can step out into the workforce and start making money, especially online. 8% of all programmers in the US work remotely and that number is expected to rise significantly over the next few years. Don’t want to leave Mountain Home? Then don’t. Job search sites like Glassdoor and Indeed have lists of companies from around the world looking for entry-level programmers.

And it’s easy to jump in. All the classes in the programming/mobile development degree are ‘flexible’ delivery, which means you can watch them live as they’re happening over the internet. You can interact with your instructors and other students as if you’re sitting right there in the classroom. The classes are also recorded and uploaded to YouTube for you to watch later because life is life and things happen. Sometimes making it to class just isn’t in the cards, but with ‘flexible’ delivery you need never miss a class again. You can ‘be’ in class without actually ‘being’ in class.
