Computer Science Major/Minor

Behind-the-Screens

Explore behind-the-scenes of modern technology and use computing to solve real-world problems with a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science. Taylor’s Computer Science students build a foundational knowledge of computational problem solving, multi-tier web development, and software and algorithm design.

The core Computer Science curriculum builds computer system analysis, design, and development skills. You also have the option to take elective Computer Science classes in artificial intelligence, graphics, information security, computer systems, and computing and missions to direct your major toward your passions.

If you choose to add the Systems curriculum to your degree, you will be trained in the complex enterprise of processes and systems. Because of the technology-driven 21st century, your faculty will encourage you to take the theories and hands-on experience from your education and explore the ethical issues raised by technology.

Outside of the classroom, you will have numerous opportunities for professional development, including extended programming practicums and semester-long research projects. Students interested in missions can even study abroad with Taylor’s Center for Computing Missions.

Computer Science Minor

If you are interested in another major, consider supplementing your passion with a minor in Computer Science. With a Computer Science minor, you will learn the basics of computational problem solving, computer ethics, and systems, in addition to electives of your choice. This minor pairs especially well with Mathematics, Engineering, and Management majors.
