Computer Science Major/Minor

Solve Real-World Problems With a Computer Sciences Degree

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 major 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 Computer Sciences 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.

Professional Development in Computer Science

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 Missions Computing. With knowledge and practical experiences from one of the best schools for Computer Science, you'll be equipped for careers in programming, software development, web development, cyber security, computer hardware engineering, and many more.

Computer Science Minor

If you are interested in another major related to Computer Science, 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.
