Computer Science

Participate in an Evolving Science

Computer Science is the study of computer programs, abstract models of computers, and applications of computing. Computer Science combines elements of mathematics, philosophy, languages, and natural science. Although computing technology is continuously changing, the core skills required to practice Computer Science remain the same: problem solving, abstract thinking, and independent learning.

As computing is increasingly applied to other fields, students in the natural sciences, business and economics, and other majors may benefit from a minor or double major in Computer Science.
