DEPARTMENT OF COMPUTER SCIENCE

The programs offered by the Department of Computer Science lead to the Bachelor of Science or the Master of Science in Computer Science. The Department of Computer Science offers two alternative tracks to complete the requirements for the Bachelor degree in Computer Science.

The first track, Bachelor of Science in Computer Science with a Minor, is designed for students who plan to have a broad but fundamental education to allow them, when they graduate, to work in cooperation with professionals trained in areas other than computer science. Students who major in Computer Science and prefer to follow this track are required to have a declared minor in another academic discipline as first-time seekers of an undergraduate degree.

The second track, Bachelor of Science in Computer Science with Computer Networks Concentration, is for students who plan to have in-depth knowledge of today’s rapidly growing field of Computer Networks. Students who major in Computer Science and prefer to follow this track are NOT required to select a minor.

The M.S. in Computer Science has been designed to provide a flexible graduate curriculum for students who matriculate through its associated degree program. The main objectives in offering this degree are as follows:

  • To provide advanced post-baccalaureate study in computer science for students with strong undergraduate preparation in the academic discipline.
  • To prepare technically superior computer professionals for the workforce.
  • To provide working computer professionals with advanced educational experiences that supports their ability to perform at
    an advanced level in their work environments.To prepare students for additional study toward the Ph.D. in Computer Science.


In summary, an interested student must first gain admission to the University; must meet his/her ASSET responsibility; and finally, must apply for admission to the Department once prerequisites and ASSET requirements have been met. Acceptance to major standing is not automatic, but subject to the decision of a Departmental Curriculum and Admissions Committee. Each student is provided with extensive advisement once admitted to the Department before further progression toward the completion of degree requirements is undertaken.
