Department of Computer Science

The department offers four plans of study: Computer Science major, Digital Media Studies major, Computer Science minor, and Computer Information Systems minor. READ MORE

Upon completion of the Computer Science Major, the student will have an understanding of and an appreciation for the interrelation of the main areas of study in Computer Science. The major provides a solid foundation of the concepts while emphasizing practical application; therefore, the graduate will be able to continue study in Computer Science at the graduate level, or enter the job market.

The Digital Media Studies major is an interdisciplinary program joining Art, Communication Arts, and Computer Science. Its purpose is to produce a student aesthetically, theoretically, and technologically trained and capable of excellence in the relatively new area of the design, production, and implementation of digital communications media. Included are such areas as web page design, digital visual and aural communications strategies and theory, interactive media design, media programming, digital presentation techniques, and technological advances in digital communications.

The Computer Science Minor is intended for students interested primarily in pursuing a career in computer science or related field immediately upon graduation.

The Computer Information Systems Minor will provide the student with a general understanding of analysis, design, and implementation of applications via third- and fourth-generation programming languages and pre-written packages. This minor is intended for the student expecting to use computers in a job-supportive mode.
