Bachelor of Science with a major in Computer Science

Computer science focuses on understanding the theoretical and practical approaches to computation and its application to problem solving. The theoretical portion prepares students to make decisions about whether and how efficiently problems can be computationally solved. While the practical portion equips students to analyze, design and implement computer systems in hardware and software. Computer Science areas include computer graphics, artificial intelligence, mobile app development, programming, computer architecture fundamentals, operating systems, networking, software engineering, database and data management, as well as the more technical aspects of information security.
