Computer Science at the College of Charleston

Computer science is more than writing code and building robots. It is the blending of computational principles and human creativity with the application of computing technologies. Since its inception, computer science has revolutionized the way we compute, communicate, find information, and conduct business. Problem solving and logical reasoning are at the core of computer science, making it one of the most pervasive areas of study. Find out more.

Message from the Chair

Chris Starr Christopher W. Starr
Department Chair
"Computer science is thinking, creating and inventing as well as conceptualizing, visualizing and communicating. Computer science bridges disciplinary boundaries, linking people and ideas together. Computer science is the extreme sport of academic pursuits, where you will encounter logic, philosophy, engineering, gaming, economics, art, aesthetics, law, ethics, social responsibility, and of course math and science."
