About this course

Outstanding computer science majors may apply to complete an MS in computer science along with a BA or BS during their four years at the College. Students must be admitted to the joint MS program. 

Prior to applying to either joint program, interested students must meet with the department counselor and Pete Segall, the College BA/MS or BS/MS adviser. Students must submit applications for the joint program in the Winter Quarter of their third year.

Furthermore, a computer science major or minor serves as an excellent foundation for work in other areas, including but not limited to mathematics, the natural sciences, social sciences, public administration, and the arts.
