bachelor of science in computer science
What is Computer Science About?
Computer science is the study of computers, computer software and computational systems including their theory, design, development and application. Principal areas within computer science include Internet and web programming, mobile system development, data mining and machine learning, social networks, video game development, human-computer interaction, artificial intelligence, database systems, programming languages, software engineering and theory of computing. Computer science incorporates concepts from mathematics, engineering and psychology.
What is the Difference between the BS and BA Computer Science Degree?
The Bachelor of Arts in Computer Science is a program for students who are interested in design and development of computer software. The Bachelor of Science in Computer Science is a program for students to study computers, computer software and computation systems including their theory, design, development, and application.
The major difference in math/science requirements between BSCS and BACS is that BSCS requires students to take higher level math and science courses. On the other hand, the students in the BACS program take general education level math and science courses. Furthermore, BSCS covers all aspects of computing, including theoretical foundations, software and systems, and BACS focuses more on software development.
