Why choose Computer Science at Biola?

Both the business and scientific communities require a work force that is computer literate. Various segments of these communities require workers who go beyond literacy and have an in-depth understanding of computation and data processing strategies. Biola's Department of Computer Science addresses these latter needs by providing both a traditional computer science track and an information systems track that focuses on the bridge between computers and business management. These two emphases provide a well-rounded major for students interested in becoming experts in computing and prepare them for either graduate work or careers at a wide range of companies.
