Bachelor in Computer Science

Full time
Bachelor's degree
Cambridge (Massachusetts, USA)

Program description

Harvard scholarsParticipate in research on software, graphics, artificial intelligence, networks, parallel and distributed systems, algorithms, and theory. 

Computer Science (CS) teaches you how to think more methodically and how to solve problems more effectively. As such, its lessons are applicable well beyond the boundaries of CS itself.

The bachelor in CS “has no exclusive domain of its own, and that its importance comes from the problems to which it is applied.” CS empowers you with tools and ideas that can be applied to practically any domain of interest to you, both in college and beyond.

Contrary to popular belief, CS is not really about programming, even though you do learn how to program. Programming languages are tools that Computer Scientists use or create in order to solve problems of interest to them. Research may be part of your coursework or as as part of individual research opportunities working with professors.

Harvard's dedicated undergraduate research facilities and Teaching Labs also provide opportunities for students to engage in hands-on learning.
