Program Learning Outcomes


“Expected student learning outcomes specify the knowledge, skills, values, and attitudes students are expected to attain in courses or in a program.” Page 69. Resource Manual for the Principles of Accreditation: Foundations for Quality Enhancement, Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC), 2018..

  1. A student meeting the requirements for a degree in Computer Science will critically analyze, apply concepts and select appropriate tools and techniques in solving computing problems.
  2. A student meeting the requirements for a degree in  computer science will develop (i.e. plan, implement and deploy) an Internet-based multi-tier application with multiple databases.
  3. A student meeting the requirements for a degree in  computer science will demonstrate his interest and expertise in one field of computing application (e.g. games, simulation, medical, movies, etc…)
  4. A student meeting the requirements for a degree in  computer science  will demonstrate a sound understanding of the basic theories of computer science, with an ability to exercise critical judgment across a range of issues.

General Education Requirements - 43 Credit Hours


Computer Science majors must meet the Baccalaureate Degree Requirements  as set out in the General Education Program .

School of Arts and Sciences Additional Natural Science Requirements - 5 Credit Hours


Students in the School of Arts and Sciences must take five additional hours of natural science: 1 lab to accompany the course taken for general education [BIO 1043 , BIO 1023 , ESC 1043 , OCY 1043 , FOR 1003  , PHY 1033 , PHY 1063 , or PHY 2113  and one additional natural science course and accompanying lab. The two natural sciences must be in different areas (one BIO and one other). In sum, students are required to take a minimum of 8 hours of natural science courses: two natural science courses (one biological science and one other) along with the labs associated with each. We recommend Psychology majors take BIO 1043   and BIO 1041  (lab) to fulfill one science requirement.

Required Mathematics Courses - 8 Credit Hours


Required Computer Science Senior Course - 4 Credit Hours


General Electives - 18 Credit Hours*


5 credit hours must be upper-level (3000- or 4000- level).

*This meets the 120-credit-hour requirement and the 42-upper-level requirement.
