Department of Computing and Information Sciences

Computing and Information Sciences

The Computing and Information Sciences department at Valparaiso University offers courses to undergraduate and graduate students that help them to understand, evaluate, automate, and improve processes — skills that can be applied to almost any problem in any field.

Undergraduate and Graduate Programs

A flexible UG major curriculum, two MA programs, and three graduate certificates offer thorough training in the principles of computer science and information technology, along with a plethora of electives that allow students to apply their training to a wide variety of fields.

Non-Majors Welcome!

By removing barriers to enrollment wherever possible, the department encourages non-majors to sample its course offerings. Many challenging and valuable upper-level courses have just one or two prerequisites.  In addition, students are encouraged to apply for the Early Entry option to the MA in Information Technology or Cyber Security programs.
