In a world of apps, smartphones, videos games and virtual reality, computer science has jumped to the top of the list of most useful degrees for finding a great, high-paying career.
Computer science degree programs emphasize the mathematical and theoretical foundations of computing, taking a scientific and practical approach to computation and its applications. Some higher education institutions may use computer science as an umbrella term to cover various specialist and vocational degrees involving computers and technology. Computer science students in a 4-year bachelor’s program learn about automation theory, logic design and system organization, computer languages and practical applications, including scientific computing and software management. A high school diploma or its equivalent is necessary for admission. Some computer science Bachelor’s Degree programs require you to take certain mathematics and computer classes before applying (BCS). Due to the complex nature of the computer science curriculum, you should have a solid understanding in mathematics and science prior to applying. After core classes are completed, participation in hands-on work experience is often necessary to graduate (BSCS).
