Computer Science Major

A degree in Computer Science will give you a broad intellectual base, well-developed interpersonal, analytical and problem-solving skills, and a basic mastery of the discipline of computer science, the theory of computation, and the design of computational systems.

Your computer science degree from Truman gives you the foundation you need in a competitive, fast-growing field of software development. Study the latest theories of computation and design from within the practical problem-solving framework of programming applications. Whether you’re interested in gaming, database management, business systems or the fast-growing field of mobile apps, there’s a place for you here.

Not majoring in computer science but still want training in computer-related skills and concepts? Choose from four minors that are a good complement to any major.

Research Opportunities

At Truman, you benefit from the small classes and personal attention only available at a small undergraduate institution. You’ll enjoy research opportunities that are more difficult to come by at a larger institution, working side-by-side with faculty and possibly even co-authoring a published paper. Your classes are taught by professors – not graduate students – and our 16:1 faculty-to-student ratio ensures you’ll receive the personal attention you need when you need it.

Our Graduates Succeed

Computer science students are among the most sought-after graduates in the global workforce today. After graduation, you’ll be well-qualified to begin a career in industry or pursue advanced study in competitive graduate programs.
