Computer Science, B.S.

Computer science is the systematic exploration of all aspects of computation including computer design, computer programming and software, information processing, algorithmic solutions to problems and the algorithmic process itself. Computer science provides underpinnings for today’s applications in industry, science, government, and business and prepares the foundation for tomorrow’s applications in ubiquitous computing, medical cures for diseases and instant access to information by everyone.

The Georgia State University B.S. degree program in computer science provides a good foundation for careers in industry, science, government and business as well as for advanced studies at the M.S. or Ph.D. level.

At Georgia State, computer science students learn to solve challenging problems and to master new technologies quickly. We also teach our students to work in teams to develop solutions. Pop culture might love the “lone programmer,” but we know employers are looking for people skills as well as technical skills, and we prepare our students accordingly.
