Learn the language of the digital age

To some people, the computer is a magic box that makes spreadsheets and plays cat videos. To you, the computer is a tool of infinite versatility with inner workings that can solve complex problems and create new worlds. The language of logic is the universal tongue of the Digital Age, and computer science is the art of becoming fluent in it.

Whether you’re seeing the possibilities for the first time or you’ve been coding since kindergarten, computer science will teach you the discipline of sound logic, stable architecture and best practices in programming and analysis, honing professional skills that will serve you for a lifetime.

The key to a thousand doors

The discipline of computer science has found its way into almost every field of business and research, from accounting software to language analysis to remote robotic surgery. A degree in computer science from SFA will give you an industry-accredited skillset that will be valuable no matter where your career takes you.
