CU now has a 2nd computer science degree program
Thanks to Mark Miller for sending this — what a great idea! I know that others have a BA in CS, but I particularly like the argument that they’re making, that this is about incorporating computing into other disciplines. And I saw on Leysia Palen’s Facebook posting that the new degree was approved.
The proposed program would offer a bachelor of arts in computer science to suit students who, for example, are majoring in geography but want the skill set to develop map databases or who are studying speech, language and hearing and could benefit from building voice-recognition software.
If approved, arts and sciences students would be able to double-major to combine a liberal arts degree program with the BA degree in computer science. The computer science curriculum would still be taught by engineering faculty members.
