Computer Science Program
Software developers and analysts find innovative solutions to complex problems in science, medicine, art, music, mathematics and more. Major in computer science at the University of Mary Washington and you’ll explore what’s possible in a program that melds theory, application, technique and design. Conduct meaningful research, do an internship, pursue a minor in data science, create something wholly original – it’s all open to you here.
Please consult the UMW Undergraduate Catalog for specific and up-to-date major requirements.
Undergraduate outcome data is collected by the UMW Career Center each year. The data is then broken down by major in order to determine how many graduates in each major are employed, attending graduate school, or pursuing a different path within 6 months of graduation.
“Knowledge Rate” describes the percent of graduates for which the institution has reasonable and verifiable information concerning the graduates’ post-graduation career activities.
“Career Outcomes Rate” describes the number of graduates who have landed in any of the employment categories (full-time, part-time, internship) in addition to service, military, and continuing education divided by the total number of students for whom an outcome is known.
