Computer Science, B.S. Sample Degree Map

The Computer Science, B.S. degree focuses on a traditional  computer science discipline with applications in scientific problem-solving and software development. After graduating, you will be able to design and build software, or solve practical problems using artificial intelligence, computer vision, scientific computing, computer graphics and other innovations.

The State University of New York at Fredonia is committed to doing our part to provide each student a clear path to graduation. This four-year degree plan is a sample map for fulfilling requirements in the major, the Fredonia Foundations (FF), and other supporting courses. The pathway that you take to your degree may differ somewhat from this illustration, depending on where you start and the detours and side trips you may take along the way. If you are committed to completing your degree in four years, we encourage you to consider signing up for the Fredonia in 4 program.
