Computer Science

William B. Greene Jr., School of Business & Technology


The major in computer science (CS) is designed to prepare students for successful employment in the computing industry in a wide range of careers such as programmers/analysts, lead programmers, software developers, and systems project leaders for applications in business, industry, or government, or for graduate school in computer science.

Course work in this major centers on the development of algorithms, which are the formal procedures for problem solving.  Solutions are implemented linguistically in software and mechanically in hardware by developing a student’s problem-solving ability through the algorithmic approach of organizing, synthesizing, and analyzing information.

It is available as a B.S. or minor. Students majoring in Computer Science may not major/minor in Computer Information Systems.

3-Year Degree Option

The three-year Bachelor’s degree option accelerates the traditional undergraduate process and is perfect for highly-motivated students. With an academically rigorous schedule, students save time and reach the workforce or graduate school earlier while still gaining the skills and experience their career paths demand. You also can still engage fully in campus life — be an athlete, lead a club, complete an internship (or two), conduct research with a professor, and be in on all the Milligan traditions.

Graduating in three years requires full-time enrollment for three consecutive fall and spring semesters as well as two summer terms, as outlined in the chart below. You’ll complete a total of 128 credits, including core curriculum, major, and optional minor or elective courses. Dual enrollment or AP credits may reduce your load or the need for some summer sessions.
