An undergraduate education should provide a broad foundation rather than a narrowly focused perspective. In today’s fast-paced world, the jobs of today will not be the jobs of tomorrow. Top companies are looking for graduates who can think and converse knowledgeably across a range of topics and with a range of people. This is achieved by taking courses in multiple fields, and interacting with fellow students pursuing a wide range of interests.
Our students will receive a BA or BSc degree (3 years, 4 years with Honours or a Minor) in the School of Arts & Sciences or a BS degree (4 years, 5 years with an integrated MS) in the School of Computing & Data Sciences. Students will be able to switch schools mid-stream, contingent upon their progress. Students in one school can take courses in the other, as long as they have the prerequisites.
