Program Overview

Solve problems, innovate and make life better through technology. Computer Science at Laurier includes the fundamentals of programming, algorithm design and computation. You’ll also study applications – everything from internet computing and writing mobile apps to applied cryptography and quantum computing. This program requires you to double major so that you can use your technical training to solve problems in diverse fields. 

Bachelor of Arts in Computer Science
Our Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Computer Science lets you combine technical training with learning in another area, typically from the Faculty of Arts. It’s an opportunity to give yourself an edge in career markets where employers often seek people who can analyze and communicate effectively as well as code.

Your first-year courses in Computer Science and Math will give you a solid understanding of the basic principles of computer science while your Arts courses will let you explore your complementary interests.

Laurier's Computer Science program exposes you to not just the software, but also to the hardware that underlies the system, giving you a fundamental understanding of digital systems and microprocessors, and an appreciation for the interaction between the hardware and the software.

Political Science Major

Explore topics like trade, political economy, environmental politics, migration, development and more while also developing skills in issue and policy analysis, legal evaluation and argument, public opinion, electoral analysis, advocacy and political communication. Gain a comprehensive understanding of global politics and the way that governments and policy shape the society around us. Graduate with the background to become an engaged citizen in your community and to pursue opportunities across Canada and abroad.
