Hofstra University Continuing Education

An Object-Oriented Programming Certificate That Is Flexible and Customizable

Gain marketable programming skills through Hofstra CE’s Object-Oriented Programming Certificate -- that will ready you for a career as a software engineer or developer. By 2024, this field is expected to grow by 17 percent, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Studying OOP teaches you a different mindset for programming -- having you look at the objects you want to manipulate before coding, which allows a more complete data analysis and a reduction in development time.

The Object-Oriented Programming Certificate is perfect for mainframe and COBOL professionals looking to upgrade their skills yet basic enough for anyone wanting to learn about OOP.

Programming is integral to all digital media -- from spreadsheets to websites to databases to video games. Understanding the difference between variables, operators and indexes is a key to success in this world of interactive technology. Hofstra CE has created a comprehensive curriculum with its OOP Certificate.

Our Object-Oriented Programming Certificate program will give you a strong foundation in OOP languages, such as C#, .Net Framework, ASP.NET and Java, and will help you keep your programming skills current. Hofstra CE’s OOP certificate will qualify you for many high-paying programming jobs -- according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median pay is just under $50 an hour.

At Hofstra CE, you can take all of the courses necessary to earn an Object-Oriented Programming Certificate, or you can take the one or two (or four) courses you need to bolster your skills, marketability and career. It’s your choice. Plus, we’ve got several online courses that give you the flexibility to study from home. Best of all, classes contain projects that have real-word applications that you can add to your portfolio -- in Advanced ASP.Net, for instance, you’ll do a website project hosted by a provider that you can later utilize in future designs.

Tuition payment plans are available for the Object-Oriented Programming Certificate.
