What makes an OBU Computer Science degree special?

Graduates of the Computer Science program of Oklahoma Baptist University are highly regarded and sought as employees by many diverse organizations. The degree programs combine aspects of both theoretical and applied computer science and computer information systems.

OBU’s Computer Science degree programs offer students a solid foundation in mathematics, applied physics, computer programming, computer organization, databases and multi-platform application development. Students work on a yearlong capstone project where they design and develop a complex project for external clients. A unique aspect of the degree is an option to explore interdisciplinary interests: students can combine their interests in computing with a second area of study. Over the years, graduates have completed the BS in Computer Science with interdisciplinary emphases in math, physics, graphic design, art, religion, Spanish, journalism, business, English, psychology and education. Students also have the opportunity to work on faculty-sponsored research projects leading to commercially available software, and publications in leading journals and conferences.
