Computer Science Program

The Computer Science program is ideal for students seeking an intellectually stimulating career that thrives on problem solving and technological innovation. The curriculum offers a wide array of courses that range from programming fundamentals to special interest electives in a variety of application areas including databases, networking, and embedded systems. The program emphasizes technical skills built upon a strong theoretical foundation in preparation for careers in industry or advanced study in graduate school.

The Mathematics and Computer Science Department offers two majors to suit student interests. The comprehensive major concentrates on theory and application and is designed for students who would like to focus on a single area of study and focus on computer science principles. The non-comprehensive major emphasizes core concepts and allows students to complement their program of study with a minor in another discipline. Both programs offer internship opportunities for students seeking professional experience prior to graduation.
