The BS in Computer Science provides essential training in the foundations of computing, data storage and information processing. With this foundation, graduates of the program can easily adapt to and create new information technologies, new computing paradigms, and new ideas for applying computer systems.
The BS in Computer Science can be completed online by transfer students if they meet the following requirements:
- Have a minimum of 45 quarter/30 semester hours of transfer credit
- Completed one (1) semester of Java or C++
- Have a minimum cumulative 2.0 GPA
- Be in good standing at the last school they attended
Note - The lab science requirement, English Composition I (WRD 103), and the pre-calculus prerequisite (MAT 130) for the Discrete Mathematics I (MAT 140) and Data Analysis (IT 223) requirements are not available online at DePaul and will need to be completed on campus or transferred in from another institution.
For more information on this option and a sample schedule please see www.cdm.depaul.edu.
Students can choose to study within one of two concentrations in the BS in Computer Science program:
- Software Development
- Game Systems
|Program Requirements||Quarter Hours|
|Liberal Studies Requirements||76|
|Major and Concentration Requirements||96|
|Total hours required||192|
Students will be able to:
- Model a computational problem, select appropriate algorithms and data structures for a solution, justify the correctness of the algorithm, and implement an application solving the problem.
- Analyze the efficiency of a computational solution mathematically and validate the analysis experimentally.
- Analyze and select an algorithm based on system effects.
- Criticize a program on the basis of its maintainability and suggest improvements.

Specified required courses within Liberal Studies may have grade minimums (e.g. C- or better). Please consult your advisor or your college and major requirements.
Courses offered in the student's primary major cannot be taken to fulfill LSP Domain requirements. If students double major, LSP Domain courses may double count for both LSP credit and the second major. Students who choose to take an experiential learning course offered by the major may count it either as a general elective or the Experiential Learning requirement.
In meeting learning domain requirements, no more than one course that is outside the student’s major and is cross-listed with a course within the student’s major, can be applied to count for LSP domain credit. This policy does not apply to those who are pursuing a double major or earning BFA or BM degrees.
