About the Computer Science at University of Rhode Island

The B.A. in Computer Science is designed for students who prefer more space for interdisciplinary study with a double major or minor in another field while preserving a strong computer science background that is excellent preparation for a career in computing.

The Department of Computer Science and Statistics provides a supportive, well-integrated center of multidisciplinary learning and research. Our faculty integrate computer science, statistics, data science, and cybersecurity while reaching beyond departmental boundaries to collaborate with scientists, artists, health care researchers, historians, and engineers across the colleges at URI. Our students grow as professionals, scholars, and citizens because they receive a strong foundation and hands-on experience in the field.
