The Computer Science major is offered at Pomona and Harvey Mudd Colleges and may be available to Scripps students. Please consult with the appropriate department chair (or equivalent) at the home college to discuss specific major/minor requirements. Scripps students who declare this major must complete a senior thesis. In addition to having a faculty major adviser in this discipline, Scripps students must maintain a primary Scripps faculty adviser.
Advances in computer science are responsible for technological innovations that have revolutionized many aspects of our lives. Computer scientists and computational thinkers will achieve further breakthroughs that can only barely be imagined today. To accomplish these tasks in ways that are sensitive to the needs of individuals and society, we need highly educated computer scientists with strong backgrounds in the liberal arts. The courses offered by the Pomona College Computer Science Department, together with those offered by Harvey Mudd and Claremont McKenna Colleges, empower both majors and non-majors to leverage and contribute to this rapidly evolving field.
Please refer to the Pomona College catalog for major/minor requirements. Refer to the Harvey Mudd College catalog for major requirements; a minor at Harvey Mudd is not available to Scripps students.
