Computer Science

Data-Driven Learning. Real-World Applications.

Computer science provides you with a sound theoretical background and the opportunities for individual and collaborative exploration of real-world computing problems.

Whether you choose to pursue a B.S. or a B.A. in Computer Science, you'll find yourself working in state-of-the-art labs while mastering programming languages like Python and Java. Once you've built a foundation, your coursework will center on creating solutions. You'll develop robotics applications, create websites, and engineer software. You'll also take courses in a specific niche preparing you for more specialized opportunities when you graduate.

Jonathan Cazalas

As educators, we care, and we are deeply passionate about student-engaged learning. My teaching philosophy is to exude this, to truly live out this care, passion, and dedication, which inevitably serves to motivate, to inspire, and to awaken in students a sincere interest in learning. While effective transmission of knowledge is arguably a key ingredient in successful teaching, my goal is to guide and inspire students to discover their goals, their purpose, and their potential.
