Future Undergraduate Students
The Department offers two undergraduate degrees: a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science (ABET/CAC-accredited) through the School of Engineering and a Bachelor of Arts in Computer Science through the College of Liberal Arts.
The Department offers two optional emphases (BSCS program only):
- Computer Security
- Data Science
Undergraduates may choose only ONE emphasis. To fulfill an emphasis, students must complete 15 hours of CSci 300+ electives.
Computer Science Minor
In addition to the two degree programs, the Department has also defined a minor in computer science that is available to BA students with any major (except computer science) and to students in some other degree programs with optional or required minors. This minor consists of CSci 111, CSci 112, CSci 211, CSci 223, and six additional hours of computer science courses at the 200-level or above.
An optional minor in computer science is available to the civil, chemical, electrical, geological, and mechanical engineering students, except to students in the computer engineering emphasis within the BSEE program.
Future Graduate Students
The Department offers two graduate degrees through the School of Engineering and the Graduate School.
- Master of Science (MS) in Engineering Science — Computer Science emphasis
- Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Engineering Science — Computer Science emphasis
