Computer Science

Wofford’s computer science major allows students to continuously learn as hardware and software technologies change or as people find new uses for computers. Students focus on fundamental concepts: programming languages, discrete mathematics, data representation, algorithm analysis, computer architecture and software engineering. Students have the opportunity to experience the interdisciplinary applications of computer science in the physical and life sciences and to solve scientific problems using computation.
