About the Department

The Department of Computer Science at Montclair State University supports the Bachelor of Science degrees in Computer Science, Information Technology and Science Informatics. It also offers a Master of Science degree in Computer Science and a MS in Computer Science with an Applied Information Technology and Information Technology Concentrations.

Our BS in CS degree has adopted and updated the curriculum of our old BS in CS - Concentration in Professional Studies degree, thus creating only one curriculum path and only one BS in CS degree for all CS students. The BS in CS - Concentration in Professional Computing degree is accredited by the Computer Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. A name change of the accredited degree is pending.

We offer other students opportunities to enhance their education through an undergraduate minor in Computer Science and a combined Computer Science BS/MS program, a CISCO Networking Academy, and for graduate students only, the Certificate in Object Oriented Computing and a sequence of graduate level computing courses for those without a background in computing.
