Bachelor of Science Program

Bachelor of Science

The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) program in computer science is accredited by ABET, the professional society that accredits engineering programs. The B.S. program provides general education, strength in mathematics and science, communication and an in-depth program in computer science including an 8-credit Senior Design Project that closely models "industrial-strength" project development.

As part of a residency requirement, all computer science majors must take a minimum of 30 credits in computer science at GW. The 30 credits include courses that students who participate in a study abroad program take during their approved study abroad.

Students in the Bachelor of Science program must work with their advisors to select both a technical and non-technical track. Detailed information on the curriculum, elective courses, and the technical and non-technical tracks is listed in the Bulletin which is the definitive statement of degree requirements and is updated to reflect and archive the requirements for each entering class. However, these links offer examples of courses and course schedules that students have used in the past and are appropriate for understanding the overall structure of our program:
