    Overview

    Computer Science is a rich academic field that studies the computational structures and processes that appear throughout the natural and human worlds. The SLAI Computer Science Program approaches computer science with a liberal arts perspective, looking more broadly than programming alone.

    Computer Science is a rich academic field that studies the computational structures and processes that appear throughout the natural and human worlds. The SLAI Computer Science Program approaches computer science with a liberal arts perspective, looking more broadly than programming alone.

    Students who attend the program will learn about finding computational solutions to two broad areas of interest: problems where the computer needs to perceive something about the world in which it lives, or alternatively problems where the computer needs to respond appropriately given a complex scenario. Participants will do this by attending classes, participating in hands-on lab activities, and working in small teams on projects directed by college faculty and mentored by undergraduate research assistants.

    The program culminates with an online research symposium where students demonstrate the results of their work to each other and the broader community.
