Computer Science

Computer Science involves the study of all aspects of computers: their technology, algorithms and programming, underlying theory, and their application.

To complete a major in Computer Science for the BCMS, students must gain 180 points above 100 level in Computer Science, including COMP200, COMP202, COMP203, COMP204, COMP235, at least 120 points above 200 level, and at least 60 points above 300 level.
