About the Department

New CS Building

The Department of Computer Science offers multiple programs of study.

CAC Accreditation LogoAt the undergraduate level, students can acquire an ABET accredited Bachelor of Science in Computer Science. Additionally, students can choose to supplement their degree with Cybersecurity and Secondary Education emphases.  For those majoring in other disciplines, 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.  Furthermore, the College of Education offers a Master of Science in STEM Education with a Computer Science emphasis. Beginning Fall 2016, students can complete a PhD in Computing with a Computer Science, Computational Science & Engineering, or Cybersecurity focus.

At Boise State, we are proud of the strong community that our programs foster. Most upper-division classes contain fewer than 30 students, facilitating important student-professor interaction.  As for clubs, the Boise State Computer Science Club encourages creativity and problem solving, while the student chapter of ACM-W 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.
