    Course Summary

    Computer Science is one of the most rapidly advancing fields today, and one from which commercial and industrial organisations of all kinds recruit for very heavily every year. By many estimates, there is a much higher demand for highly skilled CS graduates than North American universities can supply, so your employment prospects will be incredible.

    Memorial University of Newfoundland’s BSc program in Computer Science will let you specialise in nearly any application of your new skills, from the practical to the creative, from the applied to the deeply theoretical.

    In fact, if you would like to specialise even firther you can turn this into a joint degree program in:

    • computer science and statistics (B.Sc. major and honours)
    • computer science and pure mathematics (B.Sc. major and honours)
    • computer science and physics (B.Sc. major and honours)
    • computer science and geography (B.Sc. major and honours)
    • computer science and economics (B.Sc. major)
    • applied mathematics and computer science (B.Sc. major)

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
