The University of Idaho’s Department of Computer Science programs examine the field not solely in a vacuum of theories. Instead, our programs explore the ways computing and algorithmic thinking influence and intersect with other scientific and technical disciplines. This perspective shapes the structure for all undergraduate and graduate computer science programs. Our students benefit from a practical orientation to computer science; cutting-edge, world-class research; congenial, accessible faculty; and an active student population. Added to this, the department offers Idaho's only cybersecurity undergraduate program and computer science degrees at the bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degree levels.

Students may earn a bachelor’s, master’s, or doctoral degree in the field from our main campus in Moscow, Idaho; at our education center in Coeur d’Alene; or online through our Engineering Outreach distance learning effort.
