Office Applications

Scott Rosen teaching Microsoft Office programs

The purpose of the Computer Studies Office Applications classes is to explore the features and functions of computer applications commonly used in the office setting, such as word processors, spreadsheets, presentation software (such as PowerPoint), and databases (such as Access). The audience is the general computer user. Specific uses, such as accounting or business correspondence, are taught in other SRJC departments.

Beginning students should take CS 101A (PC’s for New Users) to learn basic computer operations and concepts. This course includes a brief introduction to Microsoft Word and is listed in the Computer Basics area.

To meet the diverse needs of students, courses are offered online or face-to-face (see chart below). Face-to-face courses are offered at the Santa Rosa and Petaluma campuses. Courses are offered as full semester courses (3.0 units) or in segments of shorter courses (1.5 units each). The courses are offered as a “survey” course (CS 65.11), or as in depth courses on each specific application. The choice is yours!
