Career paths in computer-related fields include classic jobs like programming, as well as jobs no one even imagined 15 or 20 years ago. Today, Dominican computer science graduates work as:

  • Programmers
  • Software engineers
  • Systems analysts
  • Support specialists
  • Security specialists
  • Systems administrators
  • Network specialists
  • Database developers
  • Web developers

Some computer science graduates continue on to graduate school for advanced degrees. Many more do so after several years in the workforce, often choosing to pursue an MBA degree.

Students who don’t want to wait to earn their MBA should consider Dominican’s five-year BS/MBA program. Qualified students may begin graduate-level work in Dominican’s Brennan School of Business while they are still undergraduates. This option reduces the time needed to earn the MBA degree.

Students in the five-year program take the required foundation courses as electives in the undergraduate program. They take one graduate course during each semester of their senior year and then the remaining courses the following year.

“The field of computer science is exciting and fast moving, with new applications and technologies introduced every day. Given the pervasiveness of computers and their applications, the potential for computer-related careers continues to grow.”
