As an undergraduate computer science student at Le Moyne, you'll learn how to: design and implement software; develop effective ways to solve computing problems, and devise new ways to use computational devices. Le Moyne's computer science program balances the theoretical and practical aspects of the discipline within a strong liberal arts framework.
As a computer science (CS) major at Le Moyne, you will be part of a small close knit community with lots of interaction with faculty members. Our introductory course has weekly laboratory sessions taught by faculty, where you will get hands-on experience with topics learned in the classroom. Our courses emphasize the fundamental concepts of computer science, treating today's popular languages, tools, and systems as current examples of these concepts. Our goal is not just to teach you the latest trending technologies but to prepare you for the dynamic nature of our field.
Degree Options for CS Majors @ Le Moyne
The College offers the following degree options:
- Bachelor of Arts in Computer Science
- Bachelor of Science in Computer Science
- Pre-engineering concentration in computer science
- Pre-engineering concentration in computer engineering
The two pre-engineering concentrations result in a B.S. degree in computer science from Le Moyne and leads to acceptance into Syracuse University's Master's program in either computer science or computer engineering.
Curriculum details on the Major
All computer science students must take eight required CSC courses, one required MTH course, and at least four upper-level CSC elective courses. A student must take at least two programming-intensive electives and at least one theory-intensive elective. Additional requirements include taking a two-course sequence in a foreign language and completing a minor in another discipline. See the College Catalog pages for CS for a complete description of the requirements to earn a B.A. or B.S. in computer science.
