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 program allows us to incorporate these and other new developments into our expanding curriculum.

Student Research & Independent Studies

Student researchers gain experience working one-on-one with faculty.


Bioinformatics is a new and rapidly-expanding field at the intersection of biology, chemistry, computer science, and applied mathematics.  The Bioinformatics program at F&M represents a collaboration between the Biology and Computer Science departments.
