The Department of Computer Science offers a comprehensive program that prepares students for professional careers and/or graduate studies in computer science.

Students majoring in computer science may choose between two degree programs: the bachelor of science (B.S.) and the bachelor of arts (B.A.). The two programs have very similar computer science requirements. The B.S. degree program requires the course 50:198:476 Introduction to the Theory of Computation, whereas the B.A. degree program does not. The programs do have substantially different natural science and mathematics requirements. The B.S. degree requires a minimum of 29-32 credits in natural science and mathematics and is intended for students planning to pursue careers and/or graduate studies in science and engineering. The B.A. degree has fewer natural science and mathematics requirements (a minimum of 21-24 credits), thus allowing students greater opportunity to develop breadth of knowledge in other disciplines such as the arts, humanities, social sciences, and business.
