In the Regent University Spring 2017 term, I completed five undergraduate courses. Their course titles are Computer Architecture, Introduction to Information Systems, and Network & Telecommunication Concepts; and Data Structures & Algorithms; and Software Engineering. The mentioned courses involved learning my computer science major requirements, and them all quantifying as three-credit courses involved them scheduled as accelerated courses. In the Regent University College of Arts & Sciences, accelerated courses are equivalent in course load to fifteen-week courses for three-credits that are regionally accredited, but their duration is eight weeks. Thus, enrollment counselors and academic advisers typically suggest that I complete two three-credit courses per eight-week session. However, in my case, three completed in the second session of the Spring 2017 term because I seek completion of my undergraduate program by August. A couple Saturdays ago, I attended Commencement. Therefore, four courses remain in my academic program with anticipation for completing this program by the completion of the Regent Summer 2017 term.
For the Summer 2017, my courses mostly involve major requirements, though a recent introduction to the Regent University course catalog, Discrete Mathematics, is a general education requirement. My remaining courses are Mobile & Smart Computing, Linear Algebra, and Network Security. These mentioned courses will build on mathematical, computer science, and information systems skills. In addition, the Biblical integration required for every course challenges me as a student that I may consider the effects of applying my research to contemporary issues. Contexts of belief might be considered immaterial for results, but this is the distinction between theoreticians and Regent academic requirements based on the Biblical Scriptures. As the follower of Christ, James (KJV), said, “But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves” (1:22). Therefore, I should focus my computer science skills for a career based on ethics. There might be various spheres of knowledge in the world, but without seeing their applications, this knowledge are branches of logic without fruit or stagnant waters. In seeking software engineering as my career, I intend on learning cyber security at the graduate level so that I may understand mathematically scientific applications in contexts of ethical defensibility. As this is the case, I applied for admissions to the Regent University Masters of Science in Cybersecurity program, and Regent University approved my application for the Fall 2017 term.
