BS in Computer Science Info

The UWG Undergraduate Catalog lists the requirements for the degree. We have also prepared an advising packet that includes the advising worksheet, recommended schedules, projected course rotation and prerequisite flowchart, and other important information.

Our graduates go on to pursue successful and rewarding careers in computing and information technology. The U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Outlook Handbook (OOH) projects "employment in computer and information technology occupations [...] to grow 13 percent from 2020 to 2030, faster than the average for all occupations." The OOH also notes that "the median annual wage for computer and information technology occupations was $91,250 in May 2020, which was higher than the median annual wage for all occupations of $41,950."  

Possible career paths for graduates include software developers, computer programmers, computer systems analysts, web developers, and database administrators.

All undergraduate Computer Science majors are advised in the Department of Computing and Mathematics. Majors participate in a two-tiered advising process during each semester of enrollment by meeting both with a professional advisor and a faculty member.

Ms. Alexandra Young is the professional academic advisor for all undergraduate Computer Science majors. Ms. Young is available to meet with students for advising appointments and can also assist via email or phone with any other academic advising questions or concerns for Computer Science.

Small Class Sizes

“Classes are smaller than at some larger universities, so we get a lot of one-on-one attention from our professors. Other schools are often more theoretical. West Georgia focuses on applied computer science, which is what I needed for the kind of career I want to start."
