Two students at their computers

Computer Science

"I really have to give kudos to the computer science department. All my professors at MCLA were great. They went above and beyond, and put in tons of hours to help me out in so many different ways. This included a number of professors who sat down with me, went over my resume, listened to my presentations and guided me through the job search." — Max Eve '13

Why MCLA is Different

The Department of Computer Science at the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts will prepare you to enter this exciting field. Our computer science program offers students a choice of two areas of concentration: software development and information technology.

Our department is always looking for new applicants, as well as students who wish to transfer here from other institutions. Many students have transferred to the Department of Computer Science from two-year community colleges and were pleasantly surprised by small class sizes, competitive costs, and a friendly, productive atmosphere.
