Computer Science

  • Major
  • Minor

We can help you prepare for a career in programming and technology. Our Computer Science Program teaches the theory behind the computer and the programming of the machine, so you will be able to improve hardware efficiency and build better applications.

The Computer Science major focuses on the study of the computer itself – how it is built, how the hardware and software work, and how to program the computer to achieve a task. The typical computer science application involves writing programs using various programming languages and focusing on software architecture, data structures, and algorithm development issues.

Why UJ?

  • Small class sizes
  • A focus on using traditional programming languages and focusing on software architecture, data structures, and algorithm development issues.
  • A liberal arts environment that allows students with an aptitude for technology to also take courses in areas of individual interest
  • Combined hands-on experience and application
