Current programs include an undergraduate major and minor in Computer Science, a Master’s program in Information Technology, and a Master’s program in Cyber Security with a diverse student population. The Department encourages a variety of experiential, research, and project-driven learning opportunities across all programs and expects a commitment to excellence in teaching.
