Computer Science (A)
The BS degree program in Computer Science is designed for students who want to create software and design software systems. Students interested in programming or working for software development firms should pursue this degree. This programs provides students with a deep understanding of creating algorithms, programming, and heuristic problem solving. This program prepares students for vocations in high-tech and computer firms such as a software engineer, network developer, database administrator, application developer, computer scientist, or researcher. In addition, the CS major also prepares students for the study of computer science at the graduate level. Finally, the BS in CS is suitable for students who want to design and create systems for businesses that are not "computer specific," such as financial, healthcare, manufacturing, service and retail. Computer science students should begin the CS major program with a strong high school background in mathematics, science, and English.
