Because the computer science field has such a wide sphere of influence, Geneva College has adopted a “Big Tent” approach to its program curriculum. Our computer science majors benefit from an outward-looking vision that actively integrates computer science with other disciplines and provides a flexible approach to earning a computer science degree.
The computer science core classes provide a broad-based understanding of the discipline’s foundations: programing, software engineering, mathematics, networking, security and ethics. The cross-disciplinary nature of the field is addressed through a minor or second major, which is required for completion of a computer science degree.
“Big Tent” Approach—Experience the breadth of the computer science field early in the program, developing the range of skills required by employers
Flexible and Cross-Disciplinary—Select a minor from cutting-edge topics such as cybersecurity, data science, or web and mobile technology. Or choose nearly any other major or minor offered at Geneva.
Depth—Set yourself apart by customizing and focusing your degree through the required minor or second major
Distinction—Geneva College is one of the few schools in the world and the only institution in the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities that offers a program in data science
Faith Integration—Develop your God-given talents and abilities, and learn to work and serve according to Christian ethics
