This Computer Science program from Loyola University New Orleans teaches you more than a practical skillset. It teaches you a new language—one that is used every day but only some of us can speak. It teaches you the language used to process information, recreate, and communicate with each other. 


This world is run by computers. With a few lines of code you can do incredible things—build a billion-dollar company, create global networks of people, inspire or fund massive social movements, rob a bank (please don’t do the last one). Therefore, those of us who learn to speak it become true architects of our culture. They become shapers of the world and its perceptions. At Loyno, you can become one of those game-changers. Whatever application of computer science calls to you, we’re ready for you to blow our minds.
