Face-to-Face - Undergraduate Degree
Adult
Our B.A. program is designed for students who wish to combine Computer Science with a second major, or with a set of secondary fields (minors), typically in natural science, liberal arts, or business. The program provides a foundation in Computer Science, along with lots of room in the curriculum to select courses in other disciplines. Students are required to elect a second major or two Secondary Fields. As part of a residency requirement, all Computer Science majors must take a minimum of 30 credits in Computer Science at GWU including courses taken during their approved study abroad program.
For those who want to combine core skills in CS with another major, the BA Program is the right choice. If you prefer to have depth and focus in computer science, then you may prefer the BS Program.

Face-to-Face - Certificate
Adult
The Department of Computer Science (CS) in The George Washington University School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS) offers a graduate certificate program in Computer Security and Information Assurance. The objective of this certificate program is to provide a coordinated four-course sequence in computer security and information assurance that emphasizes concepts in Computer Security augmented with current industry standard techniques and challenges. It provides an alternative to the full M.S. program for practicing computer scientists and other information technology personnel who wish to extend their education beyond the B.S. level, and to those who wish to acquire up-to-date knowledge in the burgeoning field of computer and network security.

The CSIA certificate can be earned by completing four courses in the program, each with a minimum grade of a B, during the regular academic semesters, as described in the Certificate Requirements.
