The department strives to offer students excellent instruction and educational opportunities in computer science, information systems, and applied computer science.

It endeavors to provide its students a durable technical foundation in an environment of rapid technical change, to enable and promote their professional growth through contact with the best professional practice, and to play a role of resource and technical leadership in the regional communities.

Program Objectives

Graduates of both undergraduate programs must be able to:

  • Analyze, design, implement, and evaluate a computerized solution to a real-life problem using appropriate tools.
  • Communicate effectively through speaking, writing, and the use of presentation tools.
  • Work effectively as a team member.
  • Enter a professional computer science/information systems position or an appropriate graduate program.
  • Pursue lifelong learning and continued professional development.
  • Be aware of ethical and societal concerns relating to computers in society and apply this knowledge in the conduct of their careers.


Two bachelor’s programs in computer science are offered: a B.A. and a B.S. You should review both programs, described below, before selecting one.

The degree programs in computer science provide a strong background to students interested in developing software for diverse computer applications. Preparation includes an understanding of programming and problem solving, data abstraction, computer hardware organization, operating systems, programming language design and translation, and development of large-scale software systems.
