BA (Mod) Computer Science (Joint Honours)
Study Computer Science with Business, Geography or Linguistics.
This joint degree provides its graduates with the knowledge and skills necessary to work in the technical field of computer science. Each of the Computer Science Joint Honours combinations offers unique opportunities where the subjects intersect. Students studying Computer Science and Geography may have a particular interest in geographic information systems, spatial data or “smart cities”. The combined study of Computer Science and Linguistics yields opportunities for graduates to specialise in computational speech and language processing or text analysis. Our long-running Computer Science and Business joint programme provides graduates with the knowledge and expertise needed to work in the technical field of Computer Science along with the business management skills required to understand the fundamentals of markets, organisations and business management.
In order to obtain an adequate grounding in each discipline, students will be required to complete certain mandatory modules, largely taught in the Freshman (first two) years. The Sophister (third and fourth) years will allow students to choose among various options in Computer science and the accompanying programme, although there will continue to be minimum requirements in each discipline.
From a computer science perspective, at the end of the course graduates will be able to design, implement/engineer and evaluate computer-based systems, processes and programs/applications to meet desired objectives and specifications. Overall at the end of the course graduates will be able to apply their knowledge of computer science, mathematics, and their joint subject, along with their problem solving skills, in new and familiar environments; both within the disciplines of Computer Science and the chosen joint subject in the wider context of the modern workplace.
