The Computer Science curriculum at Regis is geared toward helping students become more analytical, methodical thinkers, while improving their understanding of the technologically enabled world in which they live. By developing a deeper understanding of how computers operate to store, manipulate, and communicate data, students will improve their ability to leverage computing technology to solve the problems they will face in the academic and occupational aspects of their lives.
All students are required to complete Computer Technology I and II in their freshman and sophomore years, respectively. These courses expose students to a wide variety of topics, including the history of computers, computer hardware and software, network communications, website development with HTML and CSS, ethical computing practices, spreadsheet and database management, and computer programming. In addition, elective courses are available to seniors who wish to deepen their knowledge of computer programming and dynamic website design.
Beginning in the 2020-2021 academic year, juniors will have the option of taking a programming course in Java.
