Study one of today's most dynamic fields

The Computer Science major at Franklin & Marshall prepares students for the highest levels of success across a variety of professional disciplines. Also, students from a wide range of majors across campus take advantage of the Computer Science minor to gain technical and programming skills that will distinguish them throughout their careers.

This is an exciting time in Computer Science at Franklin & Marshall. We have expanded our faculty and moved from offering a minor to creating a forward-looking major in Computer Science.  We were fortunate to be able to develop this new major from the ground up, taking advantage of recent advances in computer science pedagogy. 

The flexibility of our new program allows us to incorporate these and other new developments into our new, expanding curriculum.

As part of the Mathematics Department, the Computer Science program benefits from a computer science lab which includes multiple workstations, a professional software development environment, a computer science classroom with 20 additional stations, and a multimedia lab. Mathematics and Computer Science are closely connected with the Bioinformatics  program at Franklin & Marshall.
