Computer science programs provide students with an understanding of the science of computation. The computer is a potent and omnipresent force in our society that can be used responsibly only by those who have a clear understanding of the principles of correct and reliable computation. Students completing a concentration in computer science are prepared to enter the computing profession or to continue in graduate studies.
Department Mission and Program Assessment
The mission of the Computer Science program is to provide a solid understanding of the principles of computers and computing not only in the context of problem solving, but also in technical support, education and training and software/hardware management. The program participates in the University-wide effort to assess its academic programs. Information on assessment plans, including goals, methods and outcomes is available at http://www.umflint.edu/assessment.
Programs in Computer Science
Three concentration programs are offered, all leading to the Bachelor of Science degree; the General Program in Computer Science , the Honors Program in Computer Science and the General Program in Computer Information Systems . In addition, a joint BS/MS program in Computer Science leading to both undergraduate and graduate degrees is available. Also offered are minors in Computer Science and Computer Information Systems .
