Computer science students at Illinois Wesleyan gain a broad understanding of the capabilities and limitations of computing technologies, how to solve problems and assess end-user needs, and how to adapt to changes in hardware and software technologies, as well as applications.



Foundational Approach

What sets Illinois Wesleyan's computer science program apart is its foundational approach to computing within the context of a liberal arts curriculum. 

The computer science course of study focuses on the context in which computers and computing structures exist in today's rapidly changing technological environment.

This approach produces computer science graduates who can more readily see relationships between computing and organizational/ societal problems, and needs and issues, setting them apart from those whose training is limited to more technically-oriented skills.
