CSCI Program Overview
Problem solving is the core of what we do in computer science. Beginning with the hands-on laboratory sessions in the first three courses of the Computer Science Major, all the way through your senior research project, you will hone your problem solving skills. If you choose to study computer science at CSB/SJU, you will design and create models, learn how a computation could be done and implement your model as a computer program.
Along the way you will ask moral and ethical questions such as, "Can this be computed?" and reflecting the ethical traditions and Mission Statement that CSB/SJU were founded on, "Should this be computed?".
You will work with dedicated computer science department Faculty who love teaching. We provide several opportunities to participate outside the classroom environment. Perhaps you might join one of our competitive Programming Teams, become a Computer Science Research working closely with one of our faculty members, or seek student employment as a computer science Teaching Assistants.
A degree in computer science from CSB/SJU will prepare you well for a career in computing, graduate school, but is also a good preparation for employment in business, law, medicine, and many other areas. Our Career Resource Services and Jobs and Internships are great places to find additional resources both during and after your academic career at CSB/SJU.
