Become an expert coder and design software to solve real problems.

Our new Computer Science (CS) major focuses on the design and development of software and the algorithms that make code work efficiently. The U.S. Bureau of Labor has predicted that employment of software developers will grow 31% and 4 times as fast as other fields from 2016-2026.

Computer Science majors at Elms College will become proficient in many programming languages and standards such as C#, Javascript, Python, HTML/CSS, and SQL. Required courses provide students with an in-depth understanding of CS and its applications, and include classes on programming, data structures and algorithms, database design, web design, and system administration. Electives range from courses in game design, mobile app design, and graphic design to artificial intelligence. The Computer Science major and minor course requirements are listed on the CS Curriculum and Courses page.

All of our classes are taught in our state-of-the-art computer lab with a teaching style that is applied, interactive, and hands-on. Class sizes are small, with 10-17 students per class.
