Program description

Computer Science

Computing is an integral part of contemporary life. Computer science encompasses the study of computing technology, theory, and applications in all contexts, including mobile computing, modeling, robotics and autonomous vehicles, and the internet. The Computer Science Program at Bard offers courses tailored to the interests of students from across the College. The program focuses on the fundamental ideas of computer science and introduces students to multiple programming languages and paradigms. It offers broad coverage of theoretical, applied, and systems-oriented topics. Most courses include hands-on projects so that students can learn by building, and by participating in research projects in laboratories devoted to cognition, computational biology, robotics, and symbolic computation.

The curriculum is designed to offer many opportunities for students whose interest in computing arises from their own disciplinary context. Computer science has links with, among other programs and concentrations, Mind, Brain, and Behavior, Experimental Humanities, Mathematics, Film and Electronic Arts, and Music, and students from these fields often use their computing skills and knowledge in carrying out Senior Projects.
