Bachelor of Science in Computer Science

The major in computer science leading to the Bachelor of Science degree prepares students for a career in technology, as well as graduate study in computer science. Computer science careers span the spectrum of possibilities: from working for national companies with large, well-established technology departments to founding entrepreneurial start-up companies at the frontier of future technology to filling critical support roles in virtually all possible fields, including medicine, business, manufacturing, consulting, government, law, and research.

The majors in computer science and computer science with healthcare information technology have a common set of core courses for the first two years of study, and diverge for the upper-level courses, with computer science majors acquiring a strong understanding of how and why technology works, while healthcare information technology majors focus on learning how to apply technology to healthcare-related industries.
