Do you love computers? Do you want to know more about them? Do you want to explore their capabilities, their limitations and their possibilities? If you answered yes to these questions, studying computer science may be for you.
From hardware to software and Internet to networks, computer science is the field that puts it all together. Understanding network and hardware structures, as well as programming groundwork, can lead you toward a useful, fulfilling and lifelong career.
Studying computer science will open the door to a number of future growth opportunities. For example, if you combine the computer science major with another major at La Roche, you are making yourself more marketable and opening up many job possibilities in a variety of disciplines. The growing need for computer experts with special expertise is constantly increasing. In the past, students have prepared for a career in health care by adding a health science major, and some have prepared for a career in computer forensics by adding an emphasis in criminal justice. Our graduates find entrance into graduate degree programs and/or a computer science-related job within months of graduation.
The job outlook for computer scientists and database administrators is projected to be one of the fastest growing occupations over the next decade. Employment growth and a strong need for qualified workers will result in a high demand for the skills you will develop through the Computer Science Department at La Roche College.
You will find that studying computer science at La Roche provides you with everything you need to be successful. La Roche’s computer laboratory was recently remodeled and updated with new equipment that is available to computer science majors throughout the week. We also have a dedicated hardware laboratory that is used for creating custom networks and operating systems. With both of these laboratories on campus, you will always find the resources you need in order to succeed in the major and the field.
