How the Specialization Works

Take Courses

A Coursera Specialization is a series of courses that helps you master a skill. To begin, enroll in the Specialization directly, or review its courses and choose the one you'd like to start with. When you subscribe to a course that is part of a Specialization, you’re automatically subscribed to the full Specialization. It’s okay to complete just one course — you can pause your learning or end your subscription at any time. Visit your learner dashboard to track your course enrollments and your progress.

Hands-on Project

Every Specialization includes a hands-on project. You'll need to successfully finish the project(s) to complete the Specialization and earn your certificate. If the Specialization includes a separate course for the hands-on project, you'll need to finish each of the other courses before you can start it.

Earn a Certificate

When you finish every course and complete the hands-on project, you'll earn a Certificate that you can share with prospective employers and your professional network.

  • This course is completely online, so there’s no need to show up to a classroom in person. You can access your lectures, readings and assignments anytime and anywhere via the web or your mobile device.

  • The specialization can be completed completely at your own pace -- many teachers choose to work through the course just ahead of their students. However, the specialization is broken into 5 courses of 20 hours each, covering all 10 Units of APCS A (2019-2020 version).

  • Each course in the Specialization introduces specific programming concepts which do build upon each other. If you have no prior programming experience it is suggested you take the courses in the indicated order. However, those with prior programming experience should not be overly challenged in doing courses in any order.

  • Yes, you can earn credit from the University of California San Diego for completing this Specialization. To do you will need to enroll in an additional UCSD Extension course (this can be done at any time, but it is often easier to do when beginning). This Specialization will earn 4-graduate quarter units from UCSD. These are eligible to count towards the California Supplementary Authorization.
