BS Computer Science – The Eight Threads
Make your degree "you."
Traditionally, computer science students traverse two years of skill and knowledge development before they apply what they are learning to their own goals and career trajectory. With Threads, the revolutionary CS curriculum developed by the College of Computing, students combine regular computer science instruction with classes related to particular areas of application.
The result is an intensely focused undergraduate program tailored to a student’s interests and real-world opportunities. Threads sets the standard for the future of computer science education in the United States.
Threads allows you to create your own individual computing degree. The College currently defines requirements for eight threads as listed below. Follow each link to learn more about the thread, its requirements and the resources available to learn more about projects or programs related to that thread.
Find out which threads are right for you! Follow the links below to watch videos highlighting the individual threads or explore the courses you might take in each thread.
