Coding Bootcamp Launched at Morehouse

As a way to expand the number of Blacks in computing, Morehouse College took a virtual approach. In 2020, Morehouse College partnered with Momentum Learning and Opportunity Hub to develop the Momentum@Morehouse Coding Bootcamp. The 12 week program was targeted to adult learners regardless of gender. Over 300 individuals applied to the program and ultimately 27 enrolled in the cohort. Many of the coding students reside outside of the state of Georgia and most already had an undergraduate degree before starting the program. Those who completed the boot camp were awarded a certification in Full Stack Web Development.
