                 BS in Computer Science & Information Technology (Fall 2012 & Later)
The computer science field has experienced dramatic growth and technological development within the last decade. The 21st
century is measuring up to be even more dynamic for the computer science field. The Sacred Heart University Computer Science
Department addresses the need for qualified professionals with a variety of skills. With the surge in interactive active computer
games for both learning and entertainment, the need for developers has risen and the industry is experiencing a severe shortage
of game programmers. In order to prepare students to meet this demand a special track has been developed. This track, which
consists of courses which focus on the design and development of computer games, will provide students with a strong base in
computer science as well as a concentration in gaming. For those students wishing to also pursue a Master's Degree, a five year
gaming option will be available which will allow the student to obtain both a Bachelor's and a Master's Degree.
The Gaming Track is designed to provide individuals with skills in game design, development, storyboarding, animation, creation
of objects, programming languages and action scripting.Upon completion of the degree, the student will be better equipped to
enter the field of game development as a professional.
The Computer Science Gaming major is required to successfully complete 54 credit hours. The remaining credits required for
graduation are within the liberal arts core curriculum.
