Mission Statement


The mission of the Department of Computing Sciences is to serve the students of the University of Scranton. We provide undergraduate and graduate programs in the computing sciences and play a lead role in providing both general education and specialized courses in computing that serve other programs.

Our undergraduate programs in Computer Science and Computer Information Systems are based upon the curricula guidelines of the ACM and IEEE, and prepare students for careers in computing and for the life-long learning process that the discipline requires. Our graduate program in Software Engineering is based upon guidelines provided by the Software Engineering Institute, and provides graduate level preparation to those students seeking careers in modern software development. These programs are our first priority.

The Liberal Arts tradition of the University of Scranton emphasizes the importance of the Trivium; gathering, evaluating, and disseminating information. Today, computing and communications technology provide the fundamental means of accomplishing this. Our department plays an essential role in the development and delivery of general education and service courses that meet the needs of students in other disciplines.

Although our primary community is our campus community, the departments students and faculty develop methods to serve its local, regional, national, international, and professional communities as well.

Brief History


A program in Computer Science was initially offered through the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science. The program began in 1970 and had its first graduating class in 1975. In 1989 the Computing Sciences Department was separated from the Mathematics Department and the undergraduate program in Computer Science was separated into two programs, Computer Science and Computer Information Systems. The masters program in Software Engineering began in 1990 and had its first graduates in 1993. The program in Information Technology began in the Fall of 2016 and had its first graduate in the Summer of 2018.
