Welcome to the Department of Computer Science at Loyola University Maryland, in the heart of the Baltimore-Washington technology corridor. Anchored by a student focus made possible by a small student-faculty ratio, we have offered exciting programs in the computing sciences since 1984.

Students find value in working closely with peers and faculty in designated computer science laboratories, as well as attending department social events such as movie nights, picnics, and technical talks. Students also have the opportunity to perform research, and gain real world experience through our summer research and internship programs.

Undergraduate degrees in computer science include an ABET accredited Bachelor of Science (B.S.), a more flexible Bachelor of Arts (B.A.), and an interdisciplinary major. We also offer a minor and computing certificate for non-majors.

In addition to computer science, we are one of three departments that designed and support the data science programs: B.S. in Data Science, and M.S. in Data Science.
