About Computer Science & Bioinformatics
Baylor > ECS > Computer Science > About Us

As society becomes immersed in the Information Age, the computing discipline has become an integral aspect of our world today. Computer scientists are more than just programmers. They work to solve problems from all walks of life. One may be involved in science exploring the mysteries of the universe and another may be involved in medical research. A computer scientist may be solving problems with engineers in design and implementation projects while another makes extensive use of computers in music, art, or business information processing.

The Department of Computer Science prepares students for these roles by offering a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science (B.S.C.S.) degree, a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree with a major in Computer Science, a Bachelor of Science in informatics (B.S.I.) degree with a major in bioinformatics, and a Master of Science in Computer Science degree.

A Computer Science minor is offered for students in other programs.

The Department of Computer Science supports the mission of the School of Engineering and Computer Science.
