At the University of South Carolina, an undergraduate degree in computing provides an excellent starting place for a career field in which substantial growth is predicted. Computing professions draw on a wide variety of talents and interests. For example, scientific computing professionals need a strong background in mathematics, while those working in areas such as user interfaces need a strong background in social sciences and communication.
At South Carolina you can combine a major in computing with a major or minor in another discipline to increase your marketability. These degree options allow you to combine the study of computing with intensive study in another area. For example, a combination of biology and computing provides an excellent background for bioinformatics or medicine.
We offer three majors in computing: computer engineering, computer information systems, and computer science. Students in all three majors take a common core of computer science courses as well as additional courses in supporting areas.
