The Computer Science Program at Bard

offers courses of interest to computer science, science, and non-science majors. The program focuses on teaching fundamental ideas of computer science and, in the process, introduces students to a wide variety of programming languages that emphasize different programming paradigms. Students in computer science benefit from the program's long-term focus on a broad conceptual education.

The Computer Science Program at Bard offers three standard ways to enter the program:
  • CMSC 110-119 Introduction to Computing
  • CMSC 141 or 143 Object-Oriented Programming
  • CMSC 201 Data Structures
Students who would like more information about studying computer science at Bard are encouraged to speak with any of the computer science faculty. They can also read detailed descriptions of the degree requirements.
