Minor in Computer Science

Computer Science at Webster University takes you through the essentials...operating systems, programming, design, security, telecommunications, and a bunch more, which all prepare you for your next step in selecting what you want to study in detail within the computer science program.

  • Programming
    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.
  • Telecommunications
    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.
