Computing is part of everything we do—from health and medicine to business and education, from analysis, research, and engineering to art, design, and entertainment. In fact, the computer science occupation is expected to grow 11 percent, faster than average, between now and 2024, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. That’s why the Springfield College computer and information sciences major offers courses that have direct relevance and importance across industries, allowing you to achieve your career goals. 

Our curriculum provides students with advanced skills that are sought after by employers, such as database skills, multi-platform programming development skills, analytical skills, and good, basic business intelligence. Students have the freedom to choose from three tracks: software development, internet and network security, or systems management.

Graduates from this major are highly sought after upon graduation; they have gone on to become software developers, actuaries, programmers, systems engineers, IT technicians, application developers, and more.
