Is CS for you? Do you:

  • Have a solid background in mathematics and enjoy abstraction, systems, complexity, and algorithms?
  • Have an interest in the theory, practice, art, and science of computer programming?
  • Want to sharpen your knowledge of another field with the edge of formal thinking and computation?
