COSC 59 Principles of Programming Languages

This course provides a study of the principles of programming languages. The course will focus on the similarities and differences among imperative, functional, logical, and object-oriented programming languages. Topics include formal definitions of languages and tools for automatic program translation, control structures, parameter passing, scoping, types, and functions as first-class objects. For each language category, implementation issues will be discussed, and program development strategies illustrated through programming exercises.




COSC 10, COSC 30 and COSC 51 are recommended.

Distributive and/or World Culture


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
