Bachelor of Science

  • Applied computer science is a degree program for those students who want and need the knowledge and expertise of computer science to work in one of the many disciplines that require advanced computing techniques.
  • The computer science department offers a BS in Computer Science and a BS in Applied Computer Science, with concentrations in bioinformatics, geography, computer game design, and software engineering.
  • Mason's BS in Information Technology teaches students how to apply IT to support business systems.
  • The bachelor of science in statistics is designed to provide a framework for students to develop connections between statistical concepts and theories and their applications to statistical practice.


  • The minor in computer science is intended for those pursuing other undergraduate degree programs that feel the need to pursue computer science to complement their other studies.
  • The minor provides students with a background in data analysis and statistical methodology. It is intended to complement undergraduate degree programs such as computer science, economics, environmental engineering, geography, mathematics, nursing, psychology, public administration, sociology, and systems engineering.
  • Students learn to apply IT to support business processes. The minor equips graduates with strong problem-solving, writing, and communication skills.
  • The minor in Software Engineering teaches students to design and build high-quality software, a valuable asset for engineers, mathematicians, and scientists interested in working in a variety of fields that increasingly demand strong software writing skills.
  • A minor in Statistics gives students a background in the theory and application of statistical methodology. It is intended to complement undergraduate degree programs in the College of Engineering and Computing and the College of Science.
