Computational Science is a dynamic interdisciplinary field of academic study and research. Here at New College, students combine their work in Computational Science with work in another established discipline, completing what we call a "joint disciplinary" Area of Concentration. Students thus enhance their interdisciplinary work in Computational Science with a solid grounding in a complementary discipline (such as Physics, Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, etc...). In addition to the detailed AOC requirements listed at the link below, students are encouraged to take foundational courses in several different disciplines, so that they can build on that grounding as they develop their own Computational Science curriculum in consultation with their sponsors. Students should complete minimal requirements below early in their academic career and use the list of more advanced courses to track their progress toward fulfilling the requirements in consultation with affiliated faculty members.
