The BS is our most technical undergraduate offering, designed to prepare students for careers in industry or for advanced study in computer science.
In addition to completing the degree requirements for students of Georgetown College, students majoring in computer science must also complete the following requirements:
Third and Fourth Years
The senior thesis consists of taking two semesters of Senior Thesis Seminar (COSC-300), attending department colloquia while enrolled in COSC-300, producing a thesis proposal, writing a substantial senior thesis, and presenting the thesis publicly. Students interested in this option must apply to individual faculty members. If accepted, the faculty member serves as thesis advisor, determines the acceptability of the thesis proposal, and oversees the project. Once completed, the student presents the thesis to the faculty for approval. If approved, the thesis is published as a technical report.
