Computers and computing have become increasingly integrated into our society and continually shape our lives. One does not have to look far to find examples of computing’s significant impact, from smart phone applications to credit checking systems to self-driving cars. Society needs graduates with not only strong technical skills but also significant knowledge in these application domain areas. The Bachelor of Arts in Computer Science program offers a balanced curriculum that supports students as they combine study in computer science with other disciplines across the university. The program promotes this interdisciplinary work by providing a technical core with breadth requirements, a flexible elective structure, and required directed study outside the major. The curriculum is designed to prepare students to contribute to both established and emerging application domains.
