Redesigned and reintroduced into the Newberry College curriculum, the Computer Science major seeks to meet growing demands for skilled I.T. professionals, particularly in South Carolina. The computer science track is a more science-heavy, theoretical course of study that will train students for work in coding and programming. The information technology track includes a more hands-on approach, designed for work with hardware and software to improve communication, strengthen security and solve technological problems.
