The College offers a B.S. and a B.A. in Computer Science. The B.S. in Computer Science offers seven different concentrations. The degree has 25 hours of core Computer Science courses, a series of courses to choose from as major electives, and 9-15 semester hours of related work in a discipline outside computer science, possibly forming a minor in that discipline area. The B.A. in Computer Science offers three (3) concentrations and it is less structured than the B.S. The B.A. includes a core of 5 courses that are generally prerequisites for upper level courses.
