The department offers several programs designed to serve a range of student interests and needs:

  • The Bachelor of Science in Computer Science is a four-year degree program intended to prepare students for either a career requiring a thorough background in the field or for graduate school. It is modeled to some extent on the curricular recommendations of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and provides both considerable breadth and depth.
  • Computing as a Second Major is also a four-year degree program, but one that (like the Interdisciplinary Second Major) cannot serve as a primary (stand-alone) major. It is intended for students whose primary interest is in another field but who also need or want thorough preparation in using computers. Such students will combine a primary major in the chosen field with Computing as a Second Major.
  • The Minor in Computer Science is designed to provide students with elementary skills in computing as well as a substantial computing background for graduate studies in fields where computers have become primary research tools.
  • The Minor in Management Information Systems is intended for business-oriented students and is designed to give them the technical background needed to manage and transmit information through the use of computers.
