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 Computer Science Department offers a liberal arts major, leading to a Bachelor of Science with or Bachelor of Arts in computer science. There are two emphasis options: a general (requires a minor) or comprehensive emphasis.

Sample 4-year plans are posted in the Student Resources page.

Other department offerings include a Master of Science in Computer Science Degree with a 4+1 option for computer science majors and minors. There are also several minors/emphases for students who would like a stronger background in computer science to complement their chosen major.

Congratulations Alex Hall!
