The computer science general emphasis major consists of 8 core courses plus 4 specialization courses (2 courses from each of 2 specialization areas). Both BA and BS degree choices provide students with a strong background for advanced study at the graduate level. Starting in Spring 2015, a computer science comprehensive emphasis major will be added. This major will require the completion of 16 core courses plus four specialization courses, a capstone and additional science requirements. Sample 4-year plans are posted in the Student Resources page.

In addition, the department offers several minors/emphases for students who would like a stronger background in computer science to complement their chosen major.

Congrats to Alex Hall!

Alex (Frederick Alexander Hall II) graduated from our program in Fall 2013.

He applied to pursue a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science. He received offers including full tuition and an annual stipend from several universities. He chose to attend University of California-Berkeley.

While a Computer Science major at UW-Whitewater, Alex participated in several undergraduate research projects including an interactive degree planner with Drs. Athula Gunawardena, Sobitha Samaranayake and Cheng Thao and an NSF supported computer vision related project, conducted by Dr. Lopa Mukherjee.



Congratulations to Emily Paulson. Her undergraduate research poster (Advisor Hien Nguyen) was chosen Best Poster at Undergraduate Research Day, March 19, 2014. Upon graduation in May, Emily has chosen to attend graduate school at Marquette. Other finalists from the Computer Science Program included Sajid Jaber and Shawn Reichard for their oral presentations.
