    Course Summary

    Virtually all of the world’s industries make extensive use of computers. Advances in hardware and software can change what a business is and how it works, and the demand for coders, programmers and technologists of all kinds has never been higher. The University of Victoria’s Computer Science BSc program has been created to make you a competitive applicant for the most sought after roles in this exciting, fast moving field.  

    You’ll learn about mathematics, computational theory and systems design as well as specific coding languages and advanced topics like artificial intelligence and cybersecurity.

    Not only does this degree prepare you for a career in a wide range of industries, it can be the first step in a greater academic career. Many fine universities offer Computer Science degrees at the Master’s level. With an MSc in Computer Science, you’d be in the running for the most sought-after posts and leadership positions.

    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.
