Computer Science


If you see yourself designing and creating software systems, becoming a manager or administrator to a technical enterprise, or becoming a researcher in a technical field, then computer science might be the right course of study for you. Computer science is a dynamic and rapidly growing area; an integral part of the world that we live in today. A degree in computer science will provide you with a deep understanding of theories and emerging technologies, develop cutting-edge solutions that address today’s challenges.

You can also draw on other areas of interest such as biology, business, cyber security, economics, engineering, information assurance, languages and linguistics, mathematics, physics, or public policy to address a wider range of complex issues.

This area of study will introduce you to the general computer science curriculum, building the foundation for upper-level computing specialties, while completing the general education requirements for most baccalaureate degrees.
