Mississippi College blends theoretical and practical instruction (including hands-on laboratory components) to give graduates the knowledge and flexibility they’ll need to pursue computer-related careers.
What is computer science, anyway? Generally, it is the study of computation and information processing, both in hardware and in software. It includes many topics and knowledge areas ranging from the abstract analysis of algorithms and formal grammars to more concrete subjects such as programming languages, software and computer hardware.
