Total Credit Hours
The Computer Science curriculum familiarizes you with the complex and ever-changing world of today’s software developers and software engineers. The goal of this curriculum is to educate you on the design, development, and implementation of software-based solutions and other software products for the business, entertainment, and consumer markets. To achieve this goal, the curriculum is designed to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of programming languages and skills, software-design skills, and various computer science methodologies. You will engage in application creation by participating in various computer science projects throughout the degree program that will equip you to understand the differences between small programming projects and large-enterprise software-systems projects. Through this hands-on curriculum, you will also be able to design and develop your own software project for emerging technologies. Furthermore, you will gain the critical-thinking and professional skills necessary for effective software development.
Bachelor's Objective In addition to a foundational understanding of programming skills, today’s computer scientists require a breadth of knowledge and skills to compete in this dynamic industry. The goal of the Computer Science Bachelor of Science degree program is to develop your software design and production capabilities to prepare you for entry-level positions in this field, such as software engineer, software architect, computer applications engineer, UI developer, software quality engineer, and a variety of others. It is also a goal of the program to encourage lifelong learning and critical-thinking skills through threaded research, analysis, and professional development. Through project-based learning, you will be able to create your own software-application project and articulate and deliver this project through appropriate communication strategies and business models.
