Computer Science @ Berry College
Computer science is the study of the theoretical foundations of information and computation and their implementation and application in computer systems.
The computer science program at Berry College provides you the knowledge and expertise to develop computational solutions to real-world problems, understand theoretical aspects of algorithms and computation, and deal with practical issues of implementing systems in hardware and software. At Berry you will experience the benefits of a program that is tailored to meet your needs and goals as an individual. Our interested, caring faculty are here to serve as guides and mentors, bringing to bear their exceptional training in the field as well as a genuine love of teaching.
The computer science program is housed in Berry’s ultramodern science facility, designed to enhance interactive learning and faculty/student collaboration. In addition to the four computer labs open to all Berry students, computer science majors have access to a computer projects lab and a robotics/embedded systems lab. The computer science department also maintains its own server and workstations, with access for students to work on projects and experiments.
The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science offers several compelling options for students interested in computer science. These include:
- A Major in Mathematics with Computer Science Concentration
- A Minor in Computer Science
- A Minor in Web Development
Want a job when you graduate? According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, computing-related jobs are among the fastest growing occupations. The National Science Foundation (NSF) says, “Computer science is the only STEM–science, technology, engineering and mathematics–disclipine with more job openings than there are college graduates to fill them.” Computer science graduates from Berry have been very successful securing employment and gaining admission to graduate programs. Career destinations have included the federal government, IBM, AT&T, Synovus Financial and many other large companies.
Berry students intent on obtaining advanced degrees in the fields of computer science and computer information systems have continued their education at the Georgia Institute of Technology, Georgia State University, Rice University and Auburn University, among other nationally-ranked institutions. Overall, job and graduate school placement for our graduates has been exceptionally high.
