From the modest normal school begun 75 years ago, Rowan University has become an extraordinary comprehensive institution that has improved the quality of life for the citizens of New Jersey and the surrounding states. Rowan University has evolved from its humble beginning in 1923 as a normal school, with a mission to train teachers for South Jersey classrooms, to a comprehensive university with a strong regional reputation. A leading public institution, Rowan University combines liberal education with professional preparation from the baccalaureate through the doctorate. As a Computer Science major, students master current technology and develop the versatility needed to adapt in this fast evolving field. The program focuses on developing students as flexible professionals equipped to learn new technologies and principles. Students will specialize in a specific area from software engineering, networking and operating systems, information technology, programming languages and compilers, and artificial intelligence.
A regional focus and a global outlook. All the prestige and resources of Rutgers, all the vitality and opportunity of the metro Philadelphia region, all at Rutgers–Camden. As the southernmost campus of Rutgers, we deliver the academic heft you’d expect from this powerhouse public research university. And we focus that energy—in teaching, research, and civic engagement—within the greater Delaware Valley.
The work we do on our 40-acre campus along the bustling Camden Waterfront is felt far beyond. We educate students for successful careers and productive citizenship. We support a faculty of sharp thinkers who turn new knowledge into creative solutions. And we share our expertise with partners—local and global—to improve individual lives and build stronger communities.
