The online BS in Computer Science program focuses on the intersection of technology and liberal arts subjects like psychology to prepare students for success. By combining social science with computer science, students get a unique and practical perspective on tech and its uses. In the 40 required courses, students will explore these principles in detail with guidance from experienced faculty.
This program also offers an optional cybersecurity concentration for students who are interested in security and networking. The cybersecurity program focuses on networking, systems, cloud computing, the mathematics of encryption and the human aspects of psychology and business management.
