Bloomsburg University's Department of Mathematical and Digital Sciences offers an ABET-accredited Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science. The curriculum covers core areas of computer science with an emphasis on the design, analysis, and production of complex and reliable software systems.
Graduates are prepared to pursue an advanced degree or be professionally employed in the computing field, communicate and collaborate effectively in a team environment, adapt to new technologies and assume leadership responsibilities. We also offer a minor in Computer Science, consisting of the first three core courses for majors and three CS electives.
Fast growing careers
Software engineering is among the fastest growing careers! Software developers are the creative minds behind computer programs. Some develop applications that allow people to do specific computing tasks and others develop the underlying systems that run the devices or control networks.

Computer science major lands a highly competitive internship
Landing an internship with UnitedHealth Group, the largest private health insurer in the world, is no easy task. Out of 8,000 applicants, only 25 are chosen to spend the summer in New York City with the Fortune 500 company. Brett Logan, a computer science major, was one of them.
“Not only was the culture a perfect fit for me, but my interviewer sealed the deal for me,” said Logan, who worked specifically with Optum Technologies, UnitedHealth Group’s technology subsidiary. “I was fortunate that he would later be my boss for the summer.”
During the internship, Logan worked on an internal project to reduce the development time of new software written in COBOL, a computer-programming language designed for use in commerce.
“It allowed developers the ability to search all 28,000,000 lines of code on their mainframe just as if they were searching Google for something,” Logan said. “They no longer had to hand search through code when they had to make changes.”
