Key Features

Computer Science classes are held late afternoons and evenings at Marist's main campus in Poughkeepsie, and the regular course offerings take into consideration the needs of part-time as well as full-time students. Students may thus elect to study on a full or part-time basis. Courses are chosen in consultation with the programs' directors who serve as student academic advisors.

The Computer Science - Software Development program from Marist College is designed for individuals who hold a bachelor's degree in computer science or a closely allied field. Those with little formal exposure to the field may acquire the appropriate preparation via undergraduate course work in computer science and mathematics. Prerequisite requirements can range from 0-12 credits depending on a student's background.

This 57,000-square-foot Hancock Technology Center, overlooking the Hudson River, has been designed to help fulfill the Marist goal of infusing information technology into all of its academic disciplines.
