The Computer Science discipline provides opportunities
for students in all majors to learn necessary computer skills
to be able to function in the world of today as servant leaders.
The mission statement for the Computer Science
Department reflects the DBU mission statement in its goal
to produce servant leaders. The Computer Science Department
of Dallas Baptist University is committed to providing a high-quality
education that stresses excellence in work performance, scholarship,
ethical application of knowledge, and logical and practical
skills for dealing with a society that is dependent upon constantly
changing computer-related technology. This will be accomplished
within a Christian environment that provides a spiritual foundation.
Goals of the Computer Science Major
The computer science program seeks to:
- Conform to the Association of Computing
Machinery (ACM) current academic guidelines.
- Establish a working relationship with local
- Provide opportunities for student research.
- Provide internship opportunities.
- Provide up-to-date equipment and software
for hands-on learning.
- Provide an opportunity for charitable computer
- Provide a diversity of computer platforms.
- Sponsor an on-campus computer club.
computer science major prepares students for careers in which
the computer plays a central role. A major in computer science
requires a minimum of 40 credit hours in computer science
plus a 12-credit-hour (upper-level) concentration in any approved
applied field such as business, computer security, education, internet computing, or mathematics.
More than the minimum requirements in computer science will
be necessary for students wishing to pursue graduate work
in a related field. All computer science majors are required
to take MATH 2309, 3302, and PHYS 1401, and 1402.
Students who choose to have a mathematics
concentration are encouraged to consult their advisor regarding
a double major in computer science and mathematics.
Expected Educational Results
- Majority of students demonstrate proficiency
by passing the GRE Computer Specialization Test.
- Employment for graduates in computer-related
- Graduates pursuing advanced degrees.
