GO THE EXTRA MILE
As a computer science student, you’ll participate in an intensive yearlong software development project in which you’ll work with a faculty member to develop a real solution to a real problem. You’ll be part of a close-knit group that that gathers regularly for events and shared meals, and interacts with alumni in the field. Many students also choose to participate in other opportunities:
Engage in a longstanding tradition of creative computing, in the company of globally-acclaimed scholars, designers and entrepreneurs.
In addition to your computer science major, you may decide to broaden your education by completing a second major in another discipline. You could choose a closely related discipline such as physics or mathematics, or perhaps business administration or biblical studies.
