Undergraduate Programs

Computing refers to the design, development, and use of software programs and the School of Computing offers undergraduates three majors for study: BS in Computer Science, BA in Computer Science, and BS in Computer Information Systems. In addition, the School of Computing offers two minors: Computer Science and Digital Production Arts, the latter combining artistic and technical disciplines.

Computing at Clemson offers a nationally recognized faculty that prides itself on the quality of its teaching and a broad range of research areas. Students majoring in one of our three undergraduate degrees take a common computing core curriculum, which exposes students to a variety of programming languages (e.g., C, C++, and Java) and fundamental concepts. Each degree then layers on a different combination of additional coursework to augment the core.
