Computer science is the body of knowledge related to the use of precise methodology for problem solving and information analysis.

Computer Science Sequence

This sequence is designed for liberal arts students to gain proficiency in both theory and practice. The sequence begins with introductory courses in programming, data structures, and the mathematics needed to build advanced algorithms. The sequence then continues with electives where a student can pursue specific interests in computer science. Completion of the sequence is listed on students’ transcripts.

Computer Science Courses and Majors at the other Claremont Colleges

The Claremont Colleges offer courses in computer science in close collaboration. Students interested in majoring in Computer Science may do so through Harvey Mudd College or through Pomona College, with the approval of the sponsoring department.  Students pursuing the Harvey Mudd Major should check current computer science major requirements at HMC. Students pursuing the Pomona major should check current computer science major requirements at Pomona. Students may not mix courses from these introductory sequences, but once the introductory series is complete, students may apply upper-level coursework from Pomona or HMC toward either major.
