CSC-110  Computers and Computing  (3 credits)  

This is an introduction to the fundamental ideas of computers and their implementation: office applications (word processor, spread sheet, presentation and database), elementary website design, blogging, Internet use for research (hardware, software, early pioneers of the computing industry, common terminology, etc.) and some elementary programming. Instructors may include other appropriate topics. Both Windows and MAC OS will be utilized. (Not open to those with credit in CSC 151.)

CSC-120  Computers & Electronic Health Records  (3 credits)  

This is an introduction to the fundamental ideas of computers and their role in society. Students learn of the historical origins of computers, the development of computers since WWII, their uses and impact in society, emerging technologies, and the implementation of computers: operating systems, software applications, the Internet, and an introduction to some elementary programming: e.g., HTML, SQL (Databases and Electronic Health Records), advanced spreadsheet formulas. Electronic medical records (EMRs) are a digital version of the paper charts in the clinician's office. Electronic Health Records (EHRs) focus on the total health of the patient by focusing a broader view of all aspects of a patient's care. This course has a great deal of emphasis on databases including practical hands-on experience using (EMR/EHR) software.
