What is Computer Science & Philosophy?

This major is designed for students who would like a strong foundation in Computer Science coupled with significant, advanced coursework in Philosophy. As a Philosophy and Computer Science student, you’ll gain a deep understanding of how to harness investigative questions to understand yourself, others, and the world around you, all while you learn the fundamentals of computer science. Students will take courses in computer science, math, logic and reasoning, and ethics, as well as courses specific to the CS+Philosophy major. The combination of these programs will allow you to not only ask questions, but use technology and data to create viable, innovative answers. If you’re interested in the intersection between CS and philosophy, where virtual reality, artificial intelligence, and robotics lay, then this major may be right for you.
