BS in Computer Science

The BS in Computer Science is designed for those interested in software and computer systems. It provides a solid foundation in computing and mathematics, along with specializations offered through elective courses and available certificates. Graduating seniors find fulfilling careers in many related areas such as cybersecurity, networks, Internet programming, software and mobile apps development, data science, AI, graphics, or pursue additional graduate studies. Our vast network of alumni have gone on to work for many local and internationally-recognized companies, including Bayer, Boeing, Express Scripts, Google, MasterCard, Microsoft, USPS, World Wide Technologies and more.

The entire program can be completed in the evening, and many courses can be completed online – students starting now should be able to finish all courses online. Students must also satisfy all UMSL requirements for a BS degree. In addition to university scholarships, the department awards $50k annually in mostly merit-based scholarships.
