Valparaiso University, a community of learning dedicated to excellence and grounded in the Lutheran tradition of scholarship, freedom, and faith, prepares students to lead and serve in both church and society.
The faculty in the Department of Mathematics & Computer Science are engaged teachers who challenge students to achieve at their potential. By getting to know each of their students personally in small classes, faculty members are able to provide excellent mentoring as well as individualized instruction. By participating in local, regional, and national workshops, the faculty are constantly improving their teaching skills and staying current with trends in undergraduate education. Many involve students in undergraduate research projects which blur the line between teaching and research and provide participating students an intimate look at the world of mathematics and computer science.
The mission of Vassar College is to make accessible "the means of a thorough, well-proportioned and liberal education"* that inspires each individual to lead a purposeful life. The College makes possible an education that promotes analytical, informed, and independent thinking and sound judgment; encourages articulate expression; and nurtures intellectual curiosity, creativity, respectful debate and engaged citizenship.

We support Girls Go Tech events in conjunction with the Girl Scouts of America. Villanova computer science majors helped local K-12 teachers with a capstone project by teaching eight-grade students about computing so that they could collect and process data for the project. They use success stories of women graduates of our programs as examples. They're working to develop a glossy brochure with their stories. They're also working to guarantee four-year housing to women computer science majors. Women have been ACM student chapter leaders over the last four years. Their College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Committee on Women recently completed a report on women faculty and the changes needed to support their careers. More than half the introductory courses for non-majors are taught by women. The first three semesters of required courses in computing for computer science majors are taught by women.
The Virginia Commonwealth University Department of Computer Science offers a Bachelor of Science and a Master of Science in Computer Science. Students who have completed a bachelor’s degree and are looking for a career change into computer science can complete a Certificate in Computer Science.Our mission is to:
Perform internationally recognized computer science research
Provide quality computer science education and research experience to both undergraduate and graduate students
Conduct interdisciplinary research and teaching with particular emphasis in the fields of life sciences and information security
Produce computer scientists with professional awareness and communication skills
The mission of the School of Computer Information Systems at Virginia International University is to prepare graduates to serve as leading practitioners in the field of computing in a global context and to enable them to realize their dreams through academic excellence. The school provides a world-class education in the computing discipline from diverse faculty who are experts in the fields of computer science, information systems, and information technology.
The school offers affordable hands-on graduate and undergraduate programs in the most in-demand programs on-campus and online, including Master of Science in Computer Science, Master of Science in Information Systems, Master of Science in Information Systems Management, Master of Science in Information Technology, Master of Science in Software Engineering, Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and several Graduate Certificates.
VIU is strategically located in the Washington DC metropolitan area at the intersection of technology, entrepreneurship and government which opens various internship and placement opportunities to our students and graduates.
The Department of Computer Science is home to one of the largest groups of undergraduate majors in the university as well as to graduate students in Blacksburg and at the Northern Virginia Center. Students receive outstanding instruction from dedicated teachers, and undergraduate and graduate students alike join faculty members to perform research in a variety of facilities, including a state-of-the-art technology building. The B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees provide in-depth exposure to the core body of knowledge in the computing discipline, preparing graduates for careers or further study. The computer science major is software oriented, in contrast to the hardware-oriented computer engineering major. Computer science majors design and develop software, from the software systems that control the functioning of the computer such as operating systems and compilers to applications software for areas such as numerical analysis, graphics, and data bases.
