Computer Science programs support the mission of the University by “educating men and women to search for truth, to think critically, to communicate effectively, and to serve wisely and compassionately in support of human dignity and the common good.”
Because computing professionals must be lifelong learners, the faculty is committed to preparing them with substantial knowledge, practical skills, critical thinking skills and an awareness of the social and ethical impacts of their work.
Our programs encompass the theoretical the theoretical and practical foundations of the discipline through two undergraduate majors and a graduate program. The Computer Science major is a generalist curriculum following currently accepted international guidelines. Computer Studies offers an undergraduate curriculum of applied skills and concepts. The Master of Applied Computer Science (MACS) degree addresses the need for professionals dealing with e-business, web administration, and inter-networking and may be combined with courses from the Graham School of Management for the dual MACS/MBA. A five-year accelerated bachelor's-master's option is also available.
