The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree is appropriate for students interested in learning the principles, applications and technologies of computing and computers. It is a discipline that spans theory and practice with thinking in both abstract and concrete terms. The practical side of computing can be seen everywhere.

Overview

Nearly everyone is a computer user. Receiving a BS in Computer Science enables a person to go beyond being a user and to learn software development. Computer Science, in its essence, can be thought of as problem solving. Computer scientists must be adept at modeling and analyzing problems and then to design and develop solutions. Finally, computer science has a wide range of specialties including computer architecture, software systems, graphics, artificial intelligence, database systems, security and many others.

Students planning to major in computer science should contact the department office before their first semester to schedule a meeting with an advisor. The advisor will help in developing a plan for their academic course of study.
