The newest bachelor’s degree program at UCCS will prepare a workforce needing graduates proficient in software development and computer applications. The Bachelor of Arts in Computer Science received approval by the CU Board of Regents in regular session April 2.

“This new degree will make a computing degree accessible to a larger population of students, equipping them to effectively apply knowledge of computing to multiple areas of modern knowledge-based and computer-intensive society and workplace,” said Jugal Kalita, professor and chair of computer science. “This will be a flexible program so graduates can apply these computing skills into rapidly expanding workforce needs in computing technology. Although we start with three tracks, there is limitless potential for students to concurrently develop expertise in traditionally non-computing fields which can benefit enormously from competence in software development.”
