What can I do with a Computer Science Degree?

With a BS or BA in Computer Science, you will:

  • Study sought-after areas like cybersecurity, data science, artificial intelligence, and mobile technologies.
  • Build it, code it—apply current technologies in the design and implementation of computing solutions, learning how to manipulate coding for the cleanest, most efficient result.
  • Take part in collaborative projects locally and globally, developing leadership skills in a professional team.

With an MS in Computer Science from Pace, you will distinguish yourself from the rest in this exciting and dynamic field. Whatever you are passionate about, computer science will enable you to explore, discover, and employ a wealth of skills and techniques that will help you achieve your goals. Learn how to create mobile apps and games, study artificial intelligence and machine learning, master cryptography and computer security—all of these specialties and more are options at Seidenberg.

Computer science as a field is completely adaptable: it is required in every industry, from IT administration and helpdesk positions to national security. Computing is behind many of what we take for granted in our everyday lives. It enables you to steer your car and apply the brakes at a stoplight, which changes colors based on carefully planned code. It's on the screen at movie theaters and in the subway turnstile when you swipe your card to go to work. It's in the palm of your hand every time you look at your phone (on which you send texts, play games, read the news, listen to music, watch videos, send emails, check social media, take photos and even, on rare occasions, make a call). It operates hospitals, government agencies, universities, airports, businesses, residences, and more—and in order to keep all of that operating as it should be, skilled computer scientists are constantly needed to maintain, manage, improve, and innovate.
