Whether you know a little bit about programming and are eager to learn more or you've never programmed before, don't worry, we're here to help. CS0931 is an introductory computer science course specifically developed for concentrators in the humanities and social sciences. Because of this, we'll be focusing on real world applications rather than computer science theory. There are no prerequisites, though some experience with Excel will help. Students from all fields are welcome.
The course will be very hands-on and cover a variety of topics that will ultimately allow you to:
- Practice solving real world problems by learning to use new tools and applying familiar ones - like Excel - in new ways
- Gather data from the web
- Learn about and create algorithms that analyze large amounts of data
- Create web-based interfaces
- Become proficient in a scripting language
CS0931 meets Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:30-3:50 PM in room 265 of the CIT (map).
Check out the staff page to meet the instructor, faculty, and TAs.
