The Bachelor of Science in Computer Science (BSCS) at Georgia Southern University prepares students for these high-demand careers in computer science. The program is one of the most established programs in Georgia — one of the first to receive accreditation from ABET, the highest standard for engineering and technology programs.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects employment opportunities in computer science to grow by 21% between now and 2031 — more than three times the national average.
