Computer Science Major
The new computer science major at UW-Whitewater will complement a robust technology presence on campus, which already includes programs in Information Technology and Media Arts & Game Development. The major is geared toward students who want to pursue careers in software engineering, commercial software production, systems programming, Web development, and network, database, or computer design. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, half of the 10 fastest-growing careers for college graduates are computer science-related.
The Mathematics and Computer Science department offers a liberal arts major, leading to a Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts in computer science from the College of Letters and Sciences:
- BA/BS Computer Science - 36 Credits
The computer science major consists of 8 core courses plus 4 emphasis courses (2 courses from each of 2 emphasis areas). Both BA and BS degree choices provide students with a strong background for advanced study at the graduate level. Sample 4-year plan is posted in the Student Resources section.
In addition, the department offers several minors/emphases for students who would like a stronger background in computer science and mathematics to complement their chosen major.
