Solve Real-World Problems With a Computer Sciences Degree

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 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.

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.

Bryson Shelor
Class of 2019
"My professors brought unique and insightful perspectives to every subject because of their vast industry experience within their field of study. They dynamically catered classes to the students within them in order to maximize growth and accelerate learning. Outside of class, professors cared about my development on a personal level and pushed me to become a more well-rounded, Christ-centered person."
