Coursework

As a newly established degree program for Fall 2022, the UWG Undergraduate Catalog does not yet include information about the BS in Computing. We have prepared a Computing Advising Packet (PDF, 2.5 MB) that includes information about program requirements, course descriptions, and other important advising information for the program.
