Undergraduate Programs

  • B.A. in Computer Science (for information about recent revisions to this program, please contact Laura Grabowski)
    The BA/CS degree option is intended for the general study of the principles and practice of computing and is appropriate if you want to keep your career options open, if you want to combine your study of computer science with a second major in another field, or if you are starting out your study of computer science later in your college career.

  • B.S. in Computer Science (for information about recent revisions to this program, please contact Laura Grabowski)
    • Cybersecurity Track
    • Data Analytics Track
    • General Track

    The BS/CS degree option is appropriate if you want to pursue a career as a computing professional or if you plan to enter graduate school. Students in the BS/CS degree must choose one of three tracks: a general track, a cybersecurity track, or a data analytics track. All tracks include coursework in software design, the theory of computation, algorithms, computer systems, networks, programming languages and software engineering. You may choose additional courses beyond the specific track requirements in areas such as computer games, information security, artificial intelligence, and machine learning. The BS/CS degree option also includes courses in mathematics and a science sequence. The requirements in the BS/CS degree option include 53 credits in computer science coursework, 11-15 credits in mathematics, and 8 credits in a science sequence.
  • 3-2 Program, Computer Science and Engineering
    Students can also receive an engineering double degree with SUNY Potsdam and Clarkson University. Students completing this 3/2 degree program receive a Bachelor of Arts degree from SUNY Potsdam and a Bachelor of Science degree from Clarkson University. The Computer Engineering and Software Engineering programs at Clarkson University are particularly appropriate for students interested in computer science. If you wish to pursue this double degree, you must apply to Clarkson University as well as to SUNY Potsdam.


  • Loading...
    The CS minor is appropriate if you wish to combine coursework in computer science with a major in a closely related area (such as mathematics or a physical science) or if you are interested in understanding the basics of computer science without committing to it as a major. The requirements for a minor in CS include 18 credits in computer science coursework and 5 credits in mathematics.
