A bachelor's in computer science is about empowering you with a well-rounded education so that you can anticipate change and embrace the future.
The university's course catalog offers information on courses offered, the course description, and prerequisites, and the course schedule lists the current and upcoming course offerings.
The four-year course offering guide will help you plan your program of study. Students are encouraged to meet with their advisors every semester to make sure they are on track towards a degree and that courses taken will be applicable towards graduation. Download the course offering guide here.
Our department offers undergraduate students three majors: computer science, computer engineering, or software engineering. Students in each major will learn many of the same concepts and even take some of the same courses, but will have different academic requirements and learning experiences.

Minors and Focus Areas
Students also have the opportunity to minor in computer science, or graduate with a computer science focus (advanced skills in a specific area). The University of Nebraska–Lincoln does not currently offer a minor in computer engineering or any engineering discipline.
Academic advising is an integral part of your college education. Advisers will guide and support you through the undergraduate experience and can ensure you stay on track for graduation.
In addition to assisting with course selection and schedule planning, advisers can also offer career advice and connect you with opportunities to get involved in research or student organizations.
