The Department of Computer Science offers four options for undergraduate degrees:

For a brief overview of the differences between these programs, see CS Majors at a Glance (pdf).

The Department also offers an Accelerated Master's Program (AMP), which qualified undergraduates may apply for at the end of their junior year; two courses taken during the senior year can count toward both bachelor's and master's degrees simultaneously, enabling completion of the MS in a fifth year.

Not looking for a major, then how about our minor?

You can make your course selections so that you can delay the decision. If you don't know which program is for you, we suggest taking:

  • Semester 1: CS 8, CS 21, MATH 21, ENGL 1, ECON 11
  • Semester 2: CS 50, CS 110, MATH 22, ECON 12, CS 142 or CS 64

See a CS advisor for help in keeping your options open, and in deciding which CS program is for you.
