Choose Your CS Path!
A degree in computer science opens a diverse set of pathways for your future. GW’s Department of Computer Science offers a variety of programs customized to your interests.
Bachelor of Science:
Our B.S. program offers you depth and focus in computer science. You’ll gain deep experience in programming and algorithmic problem solving, culminating in a year-long eight-credit senior design project that closely models "industrial-strength" project development. At the same time, you’ll gain a general education with the breadth of courses available to you across the university, as well as strength in mathematics and science.
Bachelor of Arts:
Our B.A. program offers you the opportunity to pursue your varied interests side-by-side with a CS concentration. This program will provide a solid foundation in CS, with lots of room in the curriculum for a second major or two minors drawn from across the university.
Not sure if computer science should be your focus? Computer Science@GW provides pathways for you to study the field as a minor or second major to most GW programs.
5-year Bachelor/Masters degree:
Already looking ahead to a masters? Our B.S. and B.A. programs can be combined with a Master's degree in computer science or data analytics for students who are ready to take their education further.
