Computer science is the systematic study of computational systems and computability. It includes theories for understanding the analysis, design, implementation, validation and verification of solutions to complex problems, and for the elicitation, representation, manipulation and visualization of knowledge. More simply put, computer scientists learn to understand what a computer can and cannot do, how computers can efficiently perform specific tasks, how computers can store and retrieve specifics type of information, how computers can most effectively organize and display information, and how computers can appear to behave intelligently. Building on the core ideas of a liberal education, the Computer Science major combines theory with practical experiences to develop skills in problem solving, programming, communication, and collaboration in order to help students realize their potential to assume leadership roles in an increasingly technical world. Computer Science majors can prepare for careers in research, development and teaching by pursuing graduate degrees, or they can apply their skills in virtually any industry, from business to biochemistry, and from education to entertainment.
