Brandeis U has a post-bacc program that lets you get a BS in comp sci in a single year, and then go directly into a masters or doctorate program.
To any programmers out there: do you think it’s possible to receive an adequate undergraduate education in a single year? I don’t have any programming background, I just became interested in programming from working at online companies. Brandeis is well rated but I don’t know how a single year of programming training could make me competitive against people who have been programming since high school and then went through a whole four years at a college. What do you think of the odds of catching up in a single year of concentrated study?
*I already have a bachelor’s degree in an unrelated field. This would be just to get the computer science classes I’d need.
