Computer science is the study of information and computation as expressed in natural systems including biological processes, economic systems, social networks, and the physical universe, through the development of artificial systems such as digital devices and computer software. Computer scientists practice in diverse fields such as medicine, bioinformatics, arts and entertainment, gaming, economics, cognitive science, and software engineering.

LMU Computer Science offers a B.S. degree program in Computer Science, an undergraduate minor program in Computer Science, and an M.S. degree program in Computer Science. Students are well-prepared for both industry careers and graduate study though a constructivist, practice-before-theory educational approach, and a collaborative, welcoming culture.
