computer science

The WOU Computer Science program includes instruction in both the theoretical and the practical aspects of computing, but the focus truly is on applied, hands-on skills that will make you marketable in the tech hotspot that is the Pacific Northwest. You’ll take courses in advanced mathematics, programming, computer architecture and operating systems as well, preparing you for jobs at firms such as Intel, Symantec, Oracle and Microsoft like many WOU graduates.
