Computer Science

Computer scientists study the generation, manipulation, and transmission of information within digital systems such as communication platforms and artificial intelligences, as well as within natural systems such as those found in sociology, biology, economics, and the physical universe. Through the development of models and algorithms, Computer Science students gain the knowledge and experience needed to convert today’s dreams into tomorrow’s achievements.

With an active student body of around 220 undergraduate majors, 50 minors, and 50 graduate majors, LMU Computer Science celebrates interdisciplinary collaborations with psychology, business, government, the sciences, and others to improve society through combined perspectives. We are committed to forming a diverse, equitable, and inclusive community that welcomes the next generation of Lions who will create novel technologies for the betterment of society.
