Computer Science Programs

Your first-year courses give you a solid foundation of mathematics and the fundamentals of computing. Then you build on that with more in-depth courses like Data Structure, Programming Languages, and Software Development. Our state-of-the-art labs and equipment ensure that your technical skills will improve with each semester. Many students decide to minor in concentrations like math, engineering, technical writing, or business. There is plenty of flexibility within the major to build a program that’s right for you.

Our students get hands-on experience working with faculty to publish research in the Association for Computing Machinery journal, or by presenting at national and regional conferences. In addition to the internship and cooperative education experience opportunities available for computer science majors, some students even work at UHart as (paid!) systems administrators for University departments.

Our graduates establish rewarding careers at companies such as Google and Apocoplay, LLC. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that job opportunities in computer and information technology occupations will grow 12% over the next ten years, faster than the average for all occupations. Our computer science program will prepare you for this growing field.

Bachelor of Arts in Computer Science

The Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Computer Science is less theory intensive than the BS degree and integrates a wider variety of liberal arts courses. The BA provides flexibility to allow students to tailor their majors to satisfy individual talents and goals. It combines a set of required core courses with the opportunity to choose from among a wide variety of elective courses in the various areas of computer science.

Bachelor of Science in Computer Science

The Bachelor of Science (BS) degree program also provides interested students with a broad approach to biology but requires a more comprehensive background in mathematics and the natural sciences. The BS program is recommended for students planning to continue study in medical school, dental school, pharmacy school, and related professional schools such as osteopathy.  The BS program is also recommended for students planning to continue study in graduate school and pursue a research career.
