Program Outcomes: 

Computational Practice

Students will design and implement significant computer programs that meet a human need and will develop expertise in bioinformatics. See the Computer Science BS program for general assessments shared across all emphases.

Computational and Biological Theory

Students will analyze problems and their algorithmic solutions using theoretical concepts from computer science and biology. See the Computer Science BS program for general assessments shared across all emphases.

Career Preparation

Students will have sufficient maturity in computer science to work in a professional setting in computer science or bioinformatics or to enter a graduate program. See the Computer Science BS program for general assessments shared across all emphases.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Our program is accessible to everyone, including women, minorities, and those new to programming, and provides an equal opportunity for every student to succeed. See the Computer Science BS program for general assessments shared across all emphases.
