Computer Science Program

Wheaton Students in Computer Lab

At Wheaton, we believe computer science is not about the technical details of this or that technology but about problem-solving. As a student in computer science at Wheaton, you'll take an interdisciplinary approach to devising efficient solutions to the puzzles of the world and prepare for a variety of exciting career opportunities in this growing field.

One of the most interdisciplinary fields, computer science, connects to work in the sciences, social sciences, literature, and music. It not only provides computing technology aids but trains your mind for the rigorous, logical thinking required by each discipline.
