• My computer science courses at Carson-Newman were both fun and challenging. Their focus on practical problems and puzzle-like exercises helped me stay engaged and learn rapidly. After graduating, I was able to find a job in less than four weeks. Computer science is a thriving field, with great pay, competitive benefits, and is required by everything in the modern world.
