Practice & Theory
Our program offers a mix of practice and theory that prepares students for career employment in computer science fields such as systems programming and analysis, software development and maintenance, and applications programming.
Our Academic Programs
Undergraduate programs include an applied computer science major, a computer science curriculum major, and a computer science minor, all of which provide a solid foundation in computer science. The department also offers a Bachelor of Arts in Computer Science which is designed for students who seek a liberal arts education combined with a solid foundation in computer science.
