Two plans for majoring in Computer Science are offered: one leading to the Bachelor of Arts degree and the other to the Bachelor of Science degree. The Bachelor of Arts plan is designed for those students seeking a career in computer science in a business environment. The Bachelor of Science plan is designed for students seeking a career in computer science in a scientific laboratory or in a software development firm.
The Computer Science Program offers a Computer Science and Accounting Dual Major. A dual major is one in which the faculty of each of the programs involved have determined that because of significant curricular commonalities and/or the requirements of external certifying bodies, students completing all of the course requirements for each major would benefit by being able to complete a single senior project and a specialized set of extended combined comprehensive exams. Dual majors are initiated by the faculty in the programs affected and are approved by the faculty as a whole. Students completing a dual major receive one diploma. The dual major is noted on the transcript. Additional information about dual majors is available from the Office of the Registrar.
The Computer Science Program also offers a Computer Science minor.
