Bachelor of Arts in Computer Science

About

The Bachelor of Arts in Computer Science degree program is designed to teach students basic computer science techniques and how to apply them to another subject area, such as business, biology, psychology, graphic design, etc. The curriculum for this degree is less mathematically rigorous than the Bachelor of Science program but still teaches the essential tools and algorithms used in computer science. Students are required to complete 15 credits from an application area outside of computer science.
