Degrees in the Department of Computer Science
B.S in Computer Science
Computer science deals with the logical and mathematical foundations of computing and how to implement problem solutions as programs in a computer language. The computer science curriculum covers the design principles of key computing technologies such as hardware, operating systems, database systems, networks, graphics, and artificial intelligence. Mathematical reasoning is emphasized throughout the program.
B.S. in Data Science
UGA’s Departments of Computer Science and Statistics in the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences have launched a new Bachelor of Science degree in Data Science. Learn about our new interdisciplinary Data Science major, which is at the interface of computer science and statistics.
Overview of the Major: The major will provide necessary background in mathematics and build a strong foundation in Data Science, covering data structures, algorithms and database management, data collection, data mining, machine learning, modeling, and inference. Students graduating with a B.S. in Data Science will know how to develop software, design and maintain databases, process data in distributed environments, analyze the data using techniques from statistics, data mining and machine learning, provide visualizations of the data or the results of analysis, and assist decision makers. The program will include experiential learning via a capstone course, which will focus on applying the acquired knowledge and skills in a real-world data analytics project.
