Program Details

Computer Science (BSc)

School: York University
Faculty: Science and Engineering
Degree: Bachelor
Field of Study: Computer Science
Description: Is it possible for a computer system to perform like a human? Can computer systems learn? How can meaningful information be extracted from huge amounts of data? If these are questions that intrigue you, then Computer Science is for you. Our professors are conducting exciting research: creating a robotic wheelchair to assist people with disabilities; building computer systems that mimic human vision; and developing a system that recognizes the gestures of American Sign Language. In the BA program you can combine Computer Science with your interests in human and social issues, while the BSc program provides the opportunity to explore interactions with other science disciplines.

Accredited by the Computer Science Accreditation Council, the Honours BSc and BA programs in Computer Science may be either specialized or combined with a second major. In addition, Lassonde offers three streams that articulate possible specializations of the BA and BSc Honours program – namely the Intelligent Systems, Interactive Systems and Communication Networks streams. Honours (4 year) BA and BSc programs in all their flavours, whether specialized or combined with a second major, are the entry point to the computer science profession or to graduate studies.
