Why Study Computational Science at New College
As a Computational Science student at New College, you’ll develop advanced skills in mathematics, quantitative analysis, computer simulation and modeling, programming and a host of other areas, all of which are designed to prepare you for graduate school and career success. Courses in bioinformatics, computational chemistry and software design are also recommended.
In addition to the detailed requirements for Computational Science listed in our General Catalog, we encourage students to take foundational courses in several different disciplines, so that you can build a solid and well-rounded foundation as you develop your own unique Computational Science curriculum in close consultation with your faculty sponsor.
Students within this AOC are encouraged to complete minimal requirements early in their academic career so that they can concentrate on more advanced courses during their third and fourth year, prior to completing the senior thesis or project.
