Computer Science Degrees: The Basics

As technology continues to drive economic and social growth, the demand for graduates of Computer Science degrees continues to expand. These exciting enhancements are one reason why now is the time to take advantage of this constantly-evolving industry and earn a Computer Science degree.

What to Expect in a Computer Science Program


With a Computer Science degree, you master a specific subject area, while gaining general background knowledge in other branches of software engineering. For example, the Computer Science Bachelor’s degree program at Rasmussen College is designed to give you a thorough understanding of the mathematics and modern object-oriented programming language skills needed to develop complex software products. In this degree program, you will take foundational business, English, and social science courses, as well as, comprehensive computer programming and logistics courses.  You will even develop applications for the web and mobile devices.

Of course it's very important to find a program that offers in-depth technical training, yet well-designed Computer Science degrees also provide a well-rounded education with courses that develop your critical thinking skills through the topics of algorithm analysis, operating systems and computer architecture.
