The B.S. in Computer Science requires 126 credit hours of study, including 42 hours in the major. Courses offerings include Game Programming, Human-Computer Interaction, Computer Graphics, Animation, Artificial Intelligence, Discrete Simulation, Network Management Systems, Computer Security, Computer Architecture, Optical Networks, Distributed Web System Design and more…

“The real value in teaching game programming is to motivate to students to improve their coding and design skills, to reinforce fundamental knowledge of mathematics and physics, and to allow them to be creative in new ways using state of the art tools,” said Jim Harris, Ph.D., professor in Computer Science at Georgia Southern.

Other program highlights include small class sizes, active research areas such as game programming, mobile computing, robotics, and software engineering, and internship and co-op opportunities. Optional study abroad experiences are also available.
