The Department of Computer Science offers two programs of study. At the undergraduate level, students can acquire a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science that is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET.  A Cybersecurity option and a minor in Computer Science is also available.  At the graduate level, students can obtain a Master of Science in Computer Science or the Computer Science Teacher Endorsement Graduate Certificate.  A Master of Science in STEM Education with a Computer Science emphasis is also attainable through the College of Education.  Most upper-division classes have fewer than 30 students in them, providing ample opportunities for students to interact with professors.  Part of the vibrant computing community at Boise State is the Student Computer Science Club, which hosts a Linux Fest each semester as well as Lan Parties, App-athon events, and other activities.  The department also has a very active student chapter of ACM-W, a group that supports, and advocates for, women in computing. Outside the classroom, local software development companies seek out upper-division students for lucrative part-time employment and high-paying internships.
