Liberal arts colleges explore interdisciplinary pathways with CS: Great to see!

April 4, 2016 at 7:58 am Leave a comment

I’m excited by this initiative.  We need to see more CS + X kinds of programs.  Our Computational Media degree program has been a Computing + Digital Media program, and is wildly successful (see example post here).  The challenge is to engage faculty from across campus in the initiative.

Bates last September launched a similar project, called the Digital Course Design/Redesign Initiative, for faculty members interested in adding digital and computational tools or methods to existing courses. If it becomes popular among faculty members, the initiative could help realize Bates’s plans of having interdisciplinary pathways for its digital and computational studies majors. Auer, the Bates dean, acknowledged that building those pathways is “going to require deep consultation with the faculty” — as well as some new faculty members in other departments.
