Computer Science

Computer Science is a new and rapidly growing multi- and interdisciplinary field that uses advanced computing and data analysis to understand and solve complex problems. As a major in Computer Science at New College, you will work closely with faculty who have experience in the classroom, as well as, in the business world to design a personalized plan of study that combines advanced classes in areas like software engineering, computing for bioinformatics, data mining, and networks and algorithms, as well as labs, research and a senior thesis project that includes an extensive programming component.  All are designed to give you a hand up when it comes to graduate school admission and career preparation.

Brilliantly [U]nique. [U]niquely Brilliant.

As part of the State University System of Florida, New College of Florida is one of the few public liberal arts and sciences honors colleges in the United States. We’re known for our record number of Fulbright Scholars (more per capita than Harvard, Stanford or Yale) and for the high rate of our students going on to graduate school. We offer an individualized, thought-provoking and challenging academic experience. What does that mean? Hands-on research conducted side by side with your professors. Small, intimate classes. Detailed narrative evaluations from your professors. Independent study required to graduate. All in a stunning location right on the water in Sarasota, Florida.
