Bachelor of Science Program
The bachelor of science (BS) program in computer science provides general education, strength in mathematics and science, communication, and an in-depth program in computer science, including an 8-credit senior design project that closely models "industrial-strength" project development.
As part of a residency requirement, all computer science majors must take a minimum of 30 upper-level credits in computer science at GW. These credits include courses that students might take in an approved study abroad program. SEAS and non-SEAS students interested in pursuing the BS in computer science as a double major need to complete all the requirements below.
Detailed information concerning the program curriculum is available in the Bulletin, which is the definitive statement of degree requirements for students.
