Computer Science Program Curriculum
Building on our core liberal arts and Bible minor courses, you will take 78.5 semester hours of computer science content. You will begin with a firm programming foundation in C++ and Java, and then move on to more advanced topics such as algorithms, web applications, databases, operating systems, and cyber operations. The program culminates with a yearlong design experience that will give you valuable practical experience as a software engineer.
You will be well-prepared to “hit the ground running” in either a software engineering job or graduate school.
