Major in Computer Science

Degree Requirements     

Exceptional Faculty and Leading Edge Applications

Our Computer Science (CS) faculty balance the academic with the practical, possessing terminal degrees plus added training in what is happening in industry right now. They are one of the most diverse groups of faculty in any department in any university.

In CS you develop – as an undergraduate – applications that are as current as today’s technology newswire, like iPhone and Android apps in use right now. As a part of the J. Whitney Bunting College of Business, you have access to the career services and networking that will prepare you for the job you want.
What is Computer Science?
Computer Science involves understanding both algorithmic foundations and cutting-edge developments in exciting areas, such as:
  • robotics
  • computer graphics
  • computer networking
  • web design
  • digital forensics
  • bioinformatics
As a computer scientist, you will be able to:
Design and Implement Software
Computer scientists take on challenging programming jobs, such as processing medical images from CAT scans, MRIs and ultrasounds, developing artificial intelligence for interactive game design and creating mobile apps.

Devise New Ways to Use Computers
The research of computer scientists in networking and databases have led to revolutionary approaches to make Internet search engines (such as Google) possible. Now, Computer Science researchers are working with scientists from other fields to make robots become practical and intelligent aides, and to use to use computers to continue to decipher the secrets of human DNA.

Develop Effective Ways to Solve Computing Problems

Computer scientists research the best possible ways to solve problems, such as storing and transmitting digital music, TV shows and movies though Internet streams such as YouTube and iTunes. Their theoretical background allows them to determine the best performance possible, and their study of algorithms helps them to develop new approaches that provide better performance.

In addition, a career for a computer scientist is typically well-paid with tremendous job opportunities. A Computer Science degree from Georgia College prepares students for opportunities from employers across all areas of business, state and local government and educational organizations.
Upon graduation areas of employment for computer scientists can include:
  • software designing and innovation
  • program analysis
  • project management
  • software architecture design
  • computer networking/IT systems
  • engineering
  • computer system and database
  • administration
  • testing and support
  • other IT related jobs
