Computer Science Major

Our Computer Science major is designed to blend the theoretical with the practical using many of today's common programming languages including C/C++, Java, Python, Scheme and several others. In many of the courses, you will get to implement the concepts presented through lab activities integrated into a single class period at one of the best computer science colleges. At York College, one of the best computer science colleges, we emphasize the design of complex software using agile software engineering practices through incremental analysis, design, implementation and testing. Students will also be introduced to a wide range of data structures and algorithms used in the computing industry.
