The Computer Science major may be available to Scripps students through Harvey Mudd College and Pomona College. Students interested in pursuing computer science should contact the department chairs at Pomona College and Harvey Mudd College as early as possible in their academic career. 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.
Students interested in majoring in Computer Science through Harvey Mudd College must refer to that College’s guidelines for off campus majors. Please refer to the Harvey Mudd College Catalog and Pomona College Catalog for major requirements. A minor at Harvey Mudd and Pomona is not available to Scripps students.
