This paper examines whether a required one-credit hour, undergraduate, software applications course is still needed at the university level. Because many of today’s university students have grown up having computers available at school and in the home, some faculty, administrators, and students have begun to question whether a course teaching application skills with the Microsoft Office Suite is still necessary. This paper examines the students’ computer skills before and after the course and looks at the relationships between various colleges and the students’ skill level before and after the course.
