Computer Science Major and Minor
The Computer Science Major and Minor at Davidson
Computer science combines problem-solving skills with cutting-edge technology to develop automated solutions and build systems for individuals and societies in diverse applications.
A major or minor in Computer Science can support the students interested not only in the creative, beautifully abstract computing problems and techniques, but also in the application and expression of those sophisticated concepts for the benefit of sciences and societies. Several of our students have entered distinguished graduate programs in computer science at Stanford, Duke, and Washington University in St. Louis, after earning their undergraduate degree. Both faculty and students have won national and international recognition for software development within physics and bioinformatics.
Ceiling Exception Request
The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science does not keep "waiting lists" for classes, however, by the end of the first week of classes, the chair will make any ceiling exceptions on a case-by-case basis. If you think a MAT or CSC course should be considered for a ceiling exception, please complete a request.
