Information and Computer SciencesInformation and Computer Sciences are relatively young, but rapidly growing, areas. Applications from these disciplines now pervade almost every field. For example, the field of bioinformatics requires the creation of sophisticated algorithms and databases to store and manage biological information and computer forensic techniques are often applied to help resolve criminal and civil cases. 

Recognizing the growing application of the field, the Department of Information and Computer Sciences (ICS) offers courses and programs in a variety of topics ranging from the very applied (such as multimedia technologies) to the highly theoretical (for example, the theory of computation). There is a course or a program that should be of relevance to anyone who is interested in the field.

The department offers undergraduate majors in Computer Information Technology, Computer Science, Computer Forensics, a master's in Computer Science, and minor and certificate programs in Computer Forensics.

  • Computer Information Technology (CIT)
    • This Bachelor of Science degree is for students who seek to become developers, designers, or information technology specialists who can deploy appropriate technology to solve problems in businesses and organizations.
  • Computer Science (CS) **Changes to Major Fall 2014**
    • The Bachelor of Science in Computer Science prepares students for high-tech positions in a variety of fields.
    • The graduate program, leading to the master's degree in Computer Science, focuses on distributed systems and computer security.
  • Computer Forensics (CF)
    • The Bachelor of Applied Science in is an attractive option for the more applied student who seeks to gain knowledge of information assurance, computer incident investigation, cyberspace ethics, and computer laws.
    • Other options in the area of Computer Forensics is the Computer Forensics minor and certificate program.

Graduates of our majors are prepared to enter the job market and to teach themselves new paradigms and techniques that will evolve during their careers.
