About

The Computer Science, Information Technology program of The University of North Carolina at Charlotte emphasizes usability, security, and reliability of IT infrastructures, as well as writing and communications skills.

Overview

Degree Requirements

The Computer Science, Information Technology program of The University of North Carolina at Charlotte prepares students for a wide variety of jobs or graduate studies.

The B.A. in Computer Science program requires a compact set of a computer science core, as well as a second concentration in a non-computer science discipline, satisfied by a second major, a minor, or a set of coordinated courses developed through consultation with an advisor.  Graduates from the B.A. program are thus expected to have knowledge and skill in computer science plus a complementary discipline to which computing applies.  The emphasis in this program is less theoretical/mathematical, and more on the applied side of computing.

Cooperative Education Program

By participating in the Cooperative Education program, students in a Computer Science degree program may pursue their education along with alternating semesters of full-time work experiences so that they may be better prepared to enter their chosen professional career.

Experiential Learning and Service Opportunities

Students are encouraged to participate in professional work experiences in support of their academic and career development through the cooperative education, 49ership, internship, and service programs offered to them. The College of Computing and Informatics works with the University Career Center to expand experiential learning offerings to enable more students to graduate with career-related experience.
