Bachelor of Computer Science

The Bachelor of Computer Science (abbreviated BCompSc or BCS) is a bachelor's degree for completion of an undergraduate program in computer science.[1][2][3][4][5] In general, computer science degree programs emphasize the mathematical and theoretical foundations of computing.[6]

Typical requirements edit

Because computer science is a wide field, courses required to earn a bachelor of computer science degree vary. A typical list of course requirements includes topics such as:[7]

Some schools may place more emphasis on mathematics and require additional courses such as:[8]

Beyond the basic set of computer science courses, students can typically choose additional courses from a variety of different fields, such as:[9]

Some schools allow students to specialize in a certain area of computer science.[10][11][12]
