Computer Science Sequence
The computer science sequence is designed to complement almost all, if not all, CMC majors. It provides a substantial course of study in both the theory and practice of computing, beginning with the fundamental concepts and elementary programming using modern programming languages such as Java, C++, Scheme, and Python, and culminating in courses emphasizing both the abstract principles of computer science as well as building systems and applications using modern software development methodologies and tools. Completion of the sequence is listed on student's transcripts.
Information on the sequence is detailed below. Information on a dual or full major in computer science is also provided below. For further information, please contact the computer science advisor: Arthur Lee (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Here is a description of the requirements for Computer Science Sequence. For a dual or a full major in CS, see the "Computer Science Programs at The Claremont Colleges" section below.
Courses and Schedule
Computer Science Programs at The Claremont Colleges
CMC, Harvey Mudd College and Pomona College offer programs in computer science in close collaboration and most computer science courses offered at the other Claremont Colleges are comparable to CMC courses. Although the introductory courses, Computer Science 51, 52, and 62 at CMC or Pomona College are collectively equivalent to Computer Science 5, 60, and 70 at Harvey Mudd College, the courses are not interchangeable and students who start with the sequence at Harvey Mudd College should continue to take the next two courses at HMC if they plan to take upper division courses at any of the three colleges. The computer science courses at all three colleges are designed in such a way that students at CMC can seamlessly continue on to a full major in computer science at Pomona College or at Harvey Mudd College. CMC students interested in pursuing a dual major in computer science may do so through Pomona College. Students interested in pursuing a full or dual major must consult with the CMC computer science advisors to ensure they select appropriate courses.
