Overview

The major in computer science provides students with the necessary training for employment in careers such as software development and information management. It provides good preparation for graduate study in a variety of disciplines.

Students may declare a major in computer science when they are admitted to the University or afterward. All students begin as Bachelor of Arts majors but may switch to the Bachelor of Science program at any time.

Undergraduates majoring in computer science develop competence in programming principles and methodologies, problem-solving techniques, mathematics, and computer systems. Computer science training is critical for many careers in science, engineering, business, and health care.

Transfer students who have taken a course approved as equivalent to a required computer science or informatics course are exempt from that course. Transfer course grades are included in the computer science grade-point average.

The Bachelor of Arts with a major in computer science requires a minimum of 120 s.h., including at least 41 s.h. of work for the major. Students must maintain a g.p.a. of at least 2.00 in all courses for the major and in all UI courses for the major. A cumulative g.p.a. of at least 2.00 is required for graduation. Students also must complete the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences GE CLAS Core.

Computer science graduates work primarily in two market sectors. One includes the software and computer industry, from small start-ups to giants such as Amazon, Google, Intel, Yahoo, and Microsoft. These offer job opportunities in software design, including UIX, mobile, and web development. Another sector is made up of organizations whose primary business is not computing, such as banks, insurance, and other financial groups; health care organizations; consulting, media, and legal firms; entertainment companies; and the military.

As many as one-third of computer science graduates go into research or elect to pursue graduate studies in computer science, including the University of Iowa's five-year B.A./M.C.S. program, or pursue other areas where computer science provides a strong foundation.

A recent job placement survey indicates that more than 97 percent of computer science graduates were placed or no longer seeking employment within six months of graduation.
