Programming is slightly different than software developer. There are numerous colleges in your area that offer a 2 year programming degree, but I am not sure that is what you want.

De Anza College
Cupertino, CA
Public · 2-year

Saddleback College
Mission Viejo, CA
Public · 2-year

Mt. San Antonio College
Walnut, CA
Public · 2-year

MiraCosta College
Oceanside, CA
Public · 2-year

I think you want a computer science degree:

Stanford University
Stanford, CA
Private, non-profit · 4-year

University of California, Berkeley
Berkeley, CA
Public · 4-year

California Institute of Technology
Pasadena, CA
Private, non-profit · 4-year

University of California, Los Angeles
Los Angeles, CA
Public · 4-year

There are a variety of colleges and degrees that involve programming to some extent or another. Some degrees like "Management Information Systems" (MIS) involve less programming, and others like "Electrical and Computer Engineering" might have programming but with a focus on hardware interaction.

The University of Arizona, located in Tucson AZ, offers both MIS/OM and ECE.

Alternatively, the online university "University of the People" (https://www.uopeople.edu/) provides free/low-tuition option.

all colleges with a computer science/math department will require programming. it is what you really want, just want to become a programmer probably not worth the 4 year in CS. to be good with programming, one needs to have logical mind, have a keen observation, good at remember things that works and not work, and willing to read/learn/try lots of stuff on the computer.
