Undergraduate Degree Programs

Computer Science

The Bachelor of Science degree program in Computer Science is designed to provide the foundation necessary for computer science graduates to succeed in the computing profession as well as in graduate school. The program has two concentrations:

  • A “Scientific” concentration that provides a depth of knowledge in the fundamental topics of computer science and mathematics that will prepare graduates for graduate studies in computer science, a career in scientific research, or a career in software engineering and application development.

  • A “Pre-MBA” concentration that provides a depth of knowledge in computer science but augments the program with business courses that will prepare graduates for graduate studies in business administration in addition to more traditional career paths for computer science graduates.

We are committed to preparing students to be nationally competitive both in the workforce and in graduate studies.  To this end, emphasis is placed on involving undergraduate students in active faculty research activities, course projects that are taken directly from the business world, and internships that are facilitated by the program. We maintain an active Industry Advisory Board that provides input and guidance to the program for producing competitive graduates.

 


Information Technology

The Bachelor of Science in Information Technology degree program features similar computer science coursework, but less math. It also includes an "Application Area" which allows student an opportunity to apply what they have learned to a specific discipline. The most current curriculum sheet can be found here:
