A few decades ago, it would have seemed unbelievable that a day would soon come when computers would be installed in everything from new cars to children’s toys, phones would take pictures and send messages by text, and a social network called Facebook would connect one-twelfth the world’s population. Technology will only continue to grow – and with it will grow the need for people who understand and further technology.
The discipline of computer science studies the programs, languages, and systems that make computing possible. The computer science major shows you how to apply these elements to real-world situations. Through your studies, you’ll learn how to improve systems’ security and accessibility, understand network and system architecture, and write programs in high-level languages.
