The School of Computer & Information Sciences hosts three departments and two centers of education and research. Departments Computer Science Department (CSD) Since 1993, the Computer Science Department at Regis University has been educating adults seeking computer science-related careers. By providing evening and online classes, adults can further their education and earn college degrees and certificates that are crucial to their careers, while holding down full-time jobs. The degree programs offered by the department are rigorous and provide a complete background on computing theory, as well as hands-on experience using computers to solve problems. The programs attempt to produce well-rounded individuals, with excellent communication and critical thinking skills, who will be able to make substantial contributions to their industries and communities. Our faculty members demonstrate current academic and professional accomplishments. The full time and affiliate faculty, who are professionals working in computer-related jobs, employ teaching techniques that integrate academic concepts with practical application through the use of adult learning theory as the model for instructional techniques. In addition to computer science courses, the department provides mathematics courses to all students in CPS to fulfill the required mathematics requirement in the CPS core studies and an optional Mathematics minor to the computer science students to enhance their skills and increase their job market.
