B.S. Computer Science – Online

Now accepting students for fall 2015. Classes start September 24.

This is a unique post-baccalaureate program in computer science that is possible to complete in one year. The program is offered by Oregon State University's renowned School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) and delivered online through OSU Ecampus.

In this online degree program, students gain knowledge and skills in programming fundamentals; software engineering; computer systems and networking; mobile and web development; and user interfaces. 

A powerful career advantage

You can build a powerful career advantage by merging computer science skills with your previous bachelor’s degree (B.A. or B.S.), essentially creating unlimited career possibilities. The combination of the two degrees will make you more marketable to employers. For example, a biology + computer science degree = a career in bioinformatics or medical information systems.
