Computer Science Major

The computer science program at Bethany Lutheran College is designed to give students a broad understanding of computer systems and the software that runs on those systems.


An initial introduction to practical computer programming and programming theory forms the foundation needed for later concepts that include computer hardware design, data structure and communication, and advanced programming topics. Students have the option to place an emphasis on the cooperative relationship between computer science and mathematics. Students are equipped with the knowledge and hands-on experience to work in industry or to continue their studies in advanced computer science.
