The Department of Computer Science at the University of Southern Maine offers a four-year program leading to a Bachelor of Science degree in computer science. Computer science courses concern the practice and the theory of solving problems by computer. More specifically, computer scientists build and analyze tools that allow complex problems to be solved. A component of computer science is the study and use of various programming languages, but computer science consists of much more than programming.
