"Advanced Programming Methodology - coming into Covenant, I had absolutely no experience with computer programming. This class was a personal breakthrough where I have learned to love and understand the foundations of coding. Dr. Humphries kept each student engaged in the class as we laughed and we learned as the class time flew by. "
