Computer Science majors learn to develop software and hardware to analyze data and solve problems. Computer scientists look for new ways of using computers, and new applications to enrich people’s lives.
The BA degree track focuses on problem solving and programming, and is a good choice if you want to combine computing with a double major or minor in another field.
- The BS degree track emphasizes the mathematical and engineering foundations of computing along with software design and development. It prepares you for graduate study or a career in computer science.
Information Systems majors learn to apply technology solutions to the way people work. That means you’ll get to know information systems inside and out, from design and implementation to support. You’ll also learn how to answer the bigger “What is this good for?” question.
Double major? Here’s the policy:
While you cannot double major in any combination of Computing Sciences degrees, if you graduate with either Computer Science degree, you’re free to pursue Information Systems as a second baccalaureate degree (or the other way around). Contact us for specifics.
