Math + Computers = Logical Career Choice

Computers are essential to nearly everything we do in our personal and professional lives. It’s no wonder, then, that computer science-related careers top “best jobs” lists year after year — not just in availability but also for earning potential.

If you enjoy math, logic and solving problems, a Bachelor of Science degree in computer science might be the perfect career fit for you. At ACU, you’ll receive broad-based training in programming languages and specialized computer science subjects. Beyond practical applications, you’ll also develop critical thinking, leadership and communication skills that will help you make ethical decisions and grow in your career, whether you want to pursue graduate school, develop software applications or develop programs for the gaming industry.
