Computer Science

In an increasingly high-tech world, graduates with knowledge and skills in computing and information technology are in high demand. Computing careers such as software engineer, Web designer, game developer, systems analyst, database manager and network administrator can be challenging, dynamic, rewarding and highly lucrative. The Computer Science program offers both a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree and a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree. The B.S. degree is a traditional, comprehensive degree, with a focus on software engineering and problem-solving. It is aligned with national curricular standards and prepares graduates for careers in software development and IT, as well as graduate study. The B.A. degree is ideal for students wishing to combine computer science with another major or area of study.
