Our information economy demands well-trained systems analysts, software specialists and programmers and Laurier’s computer science graduates succeed in this competitive environment.
Our Bachelor of Arts in Computer Science lets you combine technical training with learning in another area, typically from the Faculty of Arts. It’s an opportunity to give yourself an edge in career markets where employers often seek people who can analyze and communicate effectively as well as code. Your first-year courses in computer science and math will give you a solid understanding of the basic principles of computer science while your arts courses will let you explore your complementary interests.
Laurier's Computer Science program exposes you to not just the software, but also to the hardware that underlies the system, giving you a fundamental understanding of digital systems and microprocessors, and an appreciation for the interaction between the hardware and the software. While exposure to high school computer science is useful, the first year computer science courses provide you with the necessary background.
We also offer Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Computer Science.
