The mission of the Computer Science program is to foster the development of mathematical and computer competence of all students at the College of Saint Elizabeth.
The program in computer science is designed to provide students a strong theoretical and practical background in computer science within the liberal arts tradition. The goal of the program is to lead students to appreciate the intellectual depth of the theory of the discipline as well as to empower them to apply this knowledge in the analysis and solution of specific problems. Software methodology and basic architecture of computer hardware as well as the social, ethical, and professional issues related to computer science will be examined. Leading to a Bachelor of Science degree, the program provides a strong foundation in computing science that will prepare students to continue in a graduate program or to gain employment as a computer professional. Students from a variety of majors are encouraged to choose computer science courses that will enhance their competency and complement their major fields of study.
Computer Science core courses are required for all students majoring in Computer Science. In addition, students must choose six courses from the following with at least three at the 400 level. With the prior approval of the program chair, some courses from the Computer Information Systems may be used.
Two courses in Applied Science, Biology, Chemistry, or Physics chosen from a list approved by the Mathematics and Computer Science Program.
Students will fulfill the capstone requirement by successful completion of one written examination, one programming project, an oral presentation, and a portfolio.
