Computer Science

Our Computer Science program emphasizes a collegial relationship between faculty and students where faculty guide students into developing  both skills and concepts that are fundamental to the discipline today and in the future. 

  • An engaging curriculum where real world applications and projects are integrated into the students’ courses prepares the student for the dynamic pace of this technological world. Undergraduate research and working internships are additional avenues for our students to enhance their technical skill sets and as well develop team leadership skills.

    At Saint Francis University, our faculty are committed to helping students develop their potential and achieve their goals while receiving a broad, value-based, liberal arts education. Effective communication, leadership and teamwork, problem solving, critical thinking, and reasoning skills, appreciation of cultural diversity and ethical behavior resonate throughout the program and are specific objectives built into the curriculum to help prepare the student for successful career paths.
