The Department of Computer Science offers both undergraduate and master's degree programs. The major prepares students for graduate study or high-level professional employment in the computer and information technology industries. The department also offers a minor in computer science that gives students the background to use the computer in other disciplines.

SUNY New Paltz has a fully networked campus and a multi-user computer system that provides email, Internet access, and software to the campus community. Additionally, the Department of Computer Science maintains several specialized computer laboratories. Computer science students use these resources and gain experience working with current hardware, operating systems, and programming languages.

NOTE: No course (including transfer courses) in which a student receives a grade below C- or a pass/fail grade, may be used to satisfy a major requirement.

NOTE: Some Computer Science courses have a Math Placement Level prerequisite. Consult the Department of Mathematics for information concerning Math Placement Levels.
