  • Computer Science, CLAS

    The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences' computer science program exposes students to a broad range of disciplines, including programming languages, theory of computer science, physical science, mathematics and software engineering. Students will graduate with the ability to apply knowledge of science and mathematics to computer science problems, to design computer systems or components to satisfy users' needs and to communicate technical information regarding computer systems to other computer scientists. This program emphasizes the broader aspects of computer science and is less technical in depth than the computer science program in the Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering.

    Before Graduating Students Must

    • Pass assessment according to department rubric of student performance on a major design experience.
    • Pass assessment in one or more core courses or individual assignments targeted to each SLO.
    • Complete requirements for the baccalaureate degree, as determined by faculty.

    Students in the Major will Learn to
