Chair: Associate Professor A. Cass
Faculty: Associate Professors C. Fernandes, J. Rieffel, K. Striegnitz ; Assistant Professor N. Webb; Assistant Professor M. Anderson
Staff:  D. Frey (Systems Administrator); L. Galeo (Administrative Assistant)

The department offers a B.S. in Computer Science, supports the B.S. in Computer Engineering offered by the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, and supports a program in Digital Art with the Visual Arts department.

The department also participates in offering three minors: a traditional minor in Computer Science, a minor in Computational Methods, and a minor in Digital Media in collaboration with the Visual Arts department.

Introductory Courses

Each CS major or minor program includes one course from the following list: (CSC 103   , CSC 104   , CSC 105   , CSC 106   , CSC 107   , CSC 109   ) Each course focuses on a distinct application area. The courses all cover the same basic computer science concepts and programming skills and only one may be counted toward a major or minor. These courses are open to non-majors and are prerequisite to certain intermediate courses that are also available to and suitable for non-majors. A grade of C- or better is required in order to take any course that requires an introductory course as a prerequisite. Once one has passed an introductory course with a C- or better, no other introductory course may be taken for credit.  All of these courses satisfy SET or QMR of the Common Curriculum.
