Study the theories, experimentation and engineering that form the basis for the design and use of computers
  • Computer scientists work in almost every industry because computing is the glue that holds much of contemporary science, technology, commerce and entertainment together.
  • With a computer science degree, you can pursue a wide spectrum of roles – you could develop software, applications or websites. You could design, maintain or protect computer systems. Or you could focus on data – how to store, organize and derive value from it.

You’ll be able to take advantage of:

  • Degree choice – with the more specialized Bachelor of Science degree, you’ll take additional math, science and computing courses. With a Bachelor of Arts, you get the core computer science principles and the flexibility to take courses compatible with a liberal arts degree.
  • New or enhanced courses – you’ll keep up with innovations in cybersecurity, virtual reality, artificial intelligence, graphics, game development, web and mobile app development and more. And you have the option to pursue a cyber security or data science emphasis.
  • Community and competition – take part in our programming competitions, hackathons, esports activities and join our student chapter of the Association of Computing Machinery.
