Computer Science Major

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

When you pursue a computer science degree at Truman, you develop 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 want to pursue training in computer-related skills and concepts? Choose from four minors that are a valuable complement to any major.
