Undergraduate Programs

It is an incredibly exciting time to study Computer Science at Lyle. With the support of world-class faculty, the latest technology tools, and cutting-edge research, we encourage students to tap their intellectual abilities to approach difficult problems and create new solutions. The Department of Computer Science offers three undergraduate degree plans and one minor. 

Majors

B.S. in Computer Science

The B.S. in Computer Science degree option provides not only a thorough education in core Computer Science subjects, such as programming languages, data science, algorithms and computer networks, but also offers students several tracks and electives to choose from.

Joint Degree Program

Undergraduates can enroll in interdisciplinary joint degree programs with the Meadow School of Arts, including a B.A. in Computer Science with a B.A. in Creative Computing, or a B.A. in Computer Science with a B.A. in Music. Other combined majors can be arranged in consultation with an advisor. Interested students should contact the Department for additional details.

 

Accelerated Pathways Master's Degree Program

The Accelerated Pathways program allows students to complete both B.S. and M.S. degrees in five years. Up to nine total credit hours of graduate courses may be applied toward fulfilling the student's undergraduate program requirements in the final year of their bachelor’s degree. For additional information, students should contact the undergraduate program director.

 

Teaching Certification

Computer Science majors interested in earning a teaching certificate should contact the Simmons School of Education for information on requirements for additional course and student teaching.
