Program Overview

The Computer Science degree at Spring Hill College prepares students for careers in high-demand, high-paying fields — Cybersecurity Analyst, Software Development, and Data Science, to name a few.

With four concentrations (Cybersecurity, Computer Science, Data Science, and Computational Sciences), you’ll tailor your degree to best fit your interests and the opportunities in these fields. 

The integration of the College’s Jesuit, Catholic liberal arts foundation brings a real world perspective to the coursework for this new major. Students will learn how to utilize psychology to inform cybersecurity strategies in the Cybersecurity concentration as well as blending computer science with the social sciences through the Data Sciences concentration. The Computational Sciences concentration is designed to align the hard sciences like physics, math and chemistry with computer science.

Data Science Concentration

The Data Science concentration focuses on providing students with the education needed for a career in analyzing data among a variety of social sciences fields from Sociology to Machine Learning and more. This better prepares them to utilize data in a multitude of professional fields they explore.
