The Computer Science major offers preparation for computing careers in business, government, education, and industry as well as for graduate school.

Accelerated Bachelors/Masters (ABM) Program

High achieving students majoring in Computer Science who intend to pursue a master’s degree in Computer Science may apply to participate in the Accelerated Bachelors/Masters (ABM) pathway. The pathway allows undergraduate students an opportunity to complete select requirements for both the bachelor’s and master’s degrees simultaneously. Upon successful completion of the ABM pathway, students must submit an application (including application fee) to the graduate program.  Additional application requirements will be waived, and the student will be admitted to the program automatically. For more information about the ABM pathway, see the Graduate Catalog.
