Careers

Our rapidly-changing, technological world demands innovative minds that are highly trained and grounded in theory to work in the field of computer science.  In fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics  (BLS) predicts that employment in this field will grow by 24 percent over the next decade, which is much faster than the average for all occupations.  The demand for increasingly-sophisticated technologies will drive this demand, as will the rapid growth in computer systems design and related services industry and software publishing industry, which that BLS projects to be among the fastest growing industries in the U.S. economy.

Mount Union's combination of computer science and liberal arts is recognized by business and industry as excellent preparation for a variety of computer and data processing positions.   As a major, you will be prepared for meaningful work in a number of areas.
