Minor in Computer Science
Computer Science at Webster University takes you through the essentials...operating systems, programming, design, security, telecommunications, and a bunch more. Most of this in your first two years. All to prepare you for your next step in selecting what you want to study in detail within the computer science program.
Maybe you want to be a programmer; maybe not. Either way, it’s a pretty good idea to understand the process, how to avoid programming errors and know what software developers must deal with.
- Operating Systems
When you understand operating systems, you understand the management of the computer because the operating system controls the systems resources. Now that’s power.
The power of networks. The power of the Internet. A definite need to know.
- Data Base Administration
Computers are simply tools to store and manage information. Information is the key. This is where it’s at!
- System Security
At some point someone you know probably learned the hard way the importance of solid security. Learn how important it is for a business of any size to protect their information.
- Computer Mathematics & Logic
Math is essential. Right? So you learn all about math and its application to computers. Good stuff.
- Systems Analysis & Design
Learn how to make it better. Better solutions for an organization’s operation. Better for you.
- Decision Support
Learn how to get the right information to the right people. That’s valuable.
