About

The goal of the Computer Science - Computer Information Systems program at Saint Peter's University is to provide a curriculum for students enrolled in computer science courses as a major or a minor course of study. 

Overview

From every aspect of business to everyday life, computers are being utilized more and more every day. With the growth of computers, the job market for software engineers, network designers, security experts and “big data” analysts has risen to an all-time high.

In the late 1960’s, Saint Peter’s University was a pioneer in computer science education and today continues on the cutting-edge of this dynamic and high-potential field.

Our expert faculty and state-of-the-art computer labs provide you with hands-on learning in job-market driven computer languages, databases and applications, web development, network construction, cyber security and “big data.”

The Department of Computer and Information Sciences offers three undergraduate programs (Computer Information Systems, Cyber Security and Computer Science) leading towards the Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science as well as minor programs in computer science and cyber security. Students majoring in criminal justice can also pursue a concentration in cyber security and crime forensics.

The department also offers two graduate programs (Cyber Security and Data Science).

Department faculty participate in the M.B.A. in Cyber Security program and the Bachelors of Professional Studies Cyber Security Concentration program, which is fully online.
