Computers are everywhere and a computer science degree from Westminster College prepares you for a variety of job opportunities in the high-tech industry, business, financial services, and health care just to name a few. The expected growth in opportunities for those with computer science degrees is staggering: by 2020 there are expected to be 1 million more jobs than those with degrees in computer science!
The Computer Science curriculum at Westminster is a synergistic blend of theory and practical experience. Our classes are small, which allow an unusually high degree of personal attention in the classroom, as well as interaction with other students. In addition to teaching all classes, your full-time professors will also serve as your academic and career advisors. Our curriculum is broad and challenging, and prepares you for a future in the ever-changing technological landscape.
Juniors and seniors are also encouraged to pursue internships that can count towards degree requirements. Internships provide a chance to work in a real-world setting and learn to function efficiently within an organizational environment. Students have completed internships at several companies local to the Salt Lake Valley including Goldman Sachs, Sample Minded, and Jive Communications.
