Mr. Kelly Shurtz

I teach the following Computer Science courses, which you may read more about in this document: Mr. Shurtz Course Syllabi 2022-23

• Computer Science Principles (typically taken freshman year)
• Computer Programming 1 (taken 1st semester of sophomore year)
• Computer Programming 2 (taken 2nd semester of sophomore year) 

Note: UVU requires high school students to successfully complete both Computer Programming 1 and 2 in order to earn Concurrent Enrollment credit for CS 1400. However, the concurrent credit is actually tied to Computer Programming 2, which is why we do not enroll students into CS 1400 until the beginning of 2nd semester, when students are starting Computer Programming 2.
