Want to make a difference? As the Association for Computing Machinery notes, computing drives innovation in the sciences ranging from the human genome project to AIDS vaccine research to environmental monitoring and protection. Perhaps you’re interested in engineering, finance, or the entertainment business—computing has application in these fields too! In fact it’s a discipline that impacts almost everything we do. Requiring creativity, logic, and problem solving, computer science develops foundational skills to set one up for success no matter where one’s career path leads.
At Maryville College, computer science students learn to use mathematical and computational thinking to solve real-world problems. Combining proficiency in programming with an understanding of systems, the curriculum provides students with a broad background in software and hardware. Through Senior Study and internships students can add depth to the area of computer science they find most interesting.
