Overview

Whether you’re building the next Candy Crush, helping a business bar the gates from hackers trying to steal customer information, or helping the government analyze reams of data to help combat international threats, computer science will be at the core of your efforts. On one hand, computer science is an applied science - you’ll use your knowledge to solve specific problems. On the other, though, it’s theoretical; you’ll not only understand the possibilities and limitations of computer science, but devise algorithms and languages that others will apply.

In the Computer Science degree at Manhattanville College, you’ll bridge both theory and applied science. Learn about program design, Java programming, data structures, sequential and random access files, database design, programming languages, computer architecture and low level programming, and other advanced computer science topics.
