Computer Science & Economics


What is Computer Science & Economics ?

This major gives students the data, analytics, and digital skills needed to excel at a career in computer science while also giving them an in-depth education in economics and how they relate to individuals, businesses, and governments. Within the major, students will take intro-level and advanced courses in both computer science and economics, as well as courses related directly to CS+Economics. Courses like Discrete Structures, Data Structures, Statistical Analysis, and Economic Statistics will help form a strong, interactive bond between the two areas of interest and teach students to not only learn about economic theory, but apply the language of coding and data to back up their findings and apply their knowledge to today’s fast-paced digital economy.
