Computer science majors design and build software in multiple programming languages, work collaboratively in teams and engage with real-world projects on local, regional, national and global scales. They hone their written and oral communication skills and draw on their whole Dickinson experience to prepare for a world in which technology continually interacts with society. Majors graduate prepared for lives of engagement, in which the ethical application of their technical knowledge to wide-ranging social, business and academic challenges will drive positive change in the world.
