Computer Science – Chemistry

Major

Overview

Computer and Data Sciences combines technical skills with the liberal arts to hone problem-solving skills that may be used in a wide array of settings. The integrated majors with mathematical sciences, chemistry, and physics deepen these skills while developing specific disciplinary expertise in these sciences.

Unique Opportunities

  • Each integrated major requires students to complete a culminating project applying computer and data sciences to the other discipline; these projects take place in the senior seminar.
  • Skills in problem-solving, oral presentation writing and critical thinking are refined and developed in the upper-level disciplinary courses taken in physics, as described in the Catalog sections for each integrated major.
