Our B.A. program is designed for students who wish to combine Computer Science with a second major, or with a set of secondary fields (minors), typically in natural science, liberal arts, or business. The program provides a foundation in Computer Science, along with lots of room in the curriculum to select courses in other disciplines. Students are required to elect a second major or two Secondary Fields. As part of a residency requirement, all Computer Science majors must take a minimum of 30 credits in Computer Science at GWU including courses taken during their approved study abroad program.
For those who want to combine core skills in CS with another major, the BA Program is the right choice. If you prefer to have depth and focus in computer science, then you may prefer the BS Program.
