Computer Science with Secondary Field

| Apply | Tuition and Fees |

This concentration is designed for students who would like to combine computer science with another field of study. Computer science by its very nature is interdisciplinary, and virtually every discipline has incorporated computers - not just for word processing and spreadsheets - as an integral tool. The computer science with secondary field concentration provides the student with a strong foundation in computer science along with a working knowledge of another field, allowing him/her to be conversant with professionals in both areas, and the practical knowledge to write software in the adopted area of study with an insider's perspective. Faculty will advise students on course selection and help them develop skills appropriate for their chosen careers. Identified skills for students in this concentration include:

  • Finding solutions to difficult problems and implementing them in a programming language
  • Applying these problem solving and programming skills to problems in the chosen secondary domain
  • Interacting with professionals in the chosen domain to find solutions to problems
  • Working as a member of an interdisciplinary team
