Computer science is the study of the theoretical foundations of computing and their applications in computer systems.
It involves the study and implementation of the algorithmic processes that describe and transform information. The Computer Science program at Fairmont State University offers two-degree options. Students can pursue a B.S. in Computer Science or a B.S. in Computer Science with a Cybersecurity concentration. Cybersecurity students develop theoretical knowledge and hands-on experience with the tools and protocols needed to understand, implement, and manage security technologies as well as gain insight into the legal, social, and political dynamics of the cyber universe.
