Graduate with experience

At Hastings College, Computer Science majors serve one and sometimes two internships. Some expand their understanding of the world by studying abroad.

Along your path, you'll appreciate the stepping stones of teaching, counseling, inspiring, supporting and guiding from our engaged faculty. It's an experience that's true to Hastings College, and you won't find it anywhere else.
