The primary goal of the Computer Science Program at Morehouse is to prepare the student for graduate studies in computer science and entry into the workforce as a computer professional at the highest level possible. The program has a continuing commitment to develop students with a fundamental appreciation for computing issues. Because computers will continue to be of central importance to society, the computer science program emphasizes the acquisition of marketable knowledge and skills for professional careers in areas such as computer systems, programming languages, software engineering, and databases.

The Computer Science Program has been designed to provide a broad introduction to the field within the context of a liberal arts education. Many of the courses will emphasize the interrelationships between computer science and other disciplines. Students will select course sequences that will allow them to combine studies in computer science with interests in other areas. The program is sensitive to the fluid nature of the field of computer science and is flexible enough to respond to the rapidly-changing developments in the field. While majors will share many of the same courses, the liberal arts orientation of the program is intended to permit the student the opportunity to design a specific course study that suits his particular interests.

Students should consult with a departmental advisor on their course selections after they decide to become Computer Science majors. The goal is to make a coherent selection of lower and upper division courses.
