B.A., B.S., Minor
The computer science major and minor help students both understand the theory behind computational thinking and see how it can be applied in any field, from business to chemistry to journalism. And our students learn to communicate effectively in the language of the discipline, both in writing as well as in discussion and formal presentation.
In the classroom, we emphasize the development of logical reasoning and problem-solving skills using a variety of approaches, programming languages, and computer systems. We integrate the traditional and innovative, teaching the background that computer professionals are expected to know along with the current state (and possible future) of the science.
