Computing (BAPS) For Adult Students

​ The Bachelor of Arts in Professional Studies with a major in Computing (BAPS) program is designed for adult students who seek to advance their careers in a range of fields involving computer and networking technologies.

You’ll earn a degree that emphasizes integration of specialized knowledge with workplace-ready skills such as professional communications, data-driven decision-making, professional ethics and innovation.

Based on transferable credit or credit earned through an assessment of your prior learning from personal and professional experience, you may be able to earn your degree in two years.

You’ll learn from professors who are leaders in their fields, and who are committed to teaching and mentoring adult students. And with our dedicated adult student advisors, you'll have the road map and resources you’ll need to succeed – both in the program and once you’ve graduated.

You may take courses online or at DePaul’s Loop Campus during the evenings, or a combination of both.
