The Computer Science major prepares students to develop, maintain, and defend large and complex software applications, executive software systems, and networks.
Graduates of these programs will be equipped to handle technical and ethical challenges in an appropriate manner, developing strong competencies in reasoning and logic. Equipped with a firm foundation in algorithms and problem solving, they will learn to analyze problems and design, implement and test software solutions.
Specific outcomes and learning objectives of the computer science major provide students the ability to: analyze, design, verify, validate, implement and maintain complex software systems within cost and schedule; apply discrete mathematics, probability and statistics and relevant topics in computer science and supporting disciplines; work in one or more significant application domains; describe and apply professional and ethical responsibility; design and conduct experiments; analyze and interpret data.
At Liberty University, the Computer Science program provides an array of the foundational principles of computer science. Our primary goal is to develop Christ-centered men and women with the values, knowledge, and skills essential to positively influence computer science-related industries.
