On July 15, Dickinson announced that the fall 2020 semester will be remote. Campus is closed to visitors who do not have an approved appointment. Face coverings must be worn at all times.
The computer science program at Dickinson delivers a rigorous forward-looking curriculum built around enduring principles, foundational theories and modern practices that prepare students for a wide range of possible futures.
Computer science majors design and build software in multiple programming languages, work collaboratively in teams and engage with real-world projects on local, regional, national and global scales. They hone their written and oral communication skills and draw on their whole Dickinson experience to prepare for a world in which technology continually interacts with society. Majors graduate prepared for lives of engagement, in which the ethical application of their technical knowledge to wide-ranging social, business and academic challenges will drive positive change in the world.
During spring of my junior year, I started to provide computational biology/bioinformatics support to Professor Roberts’ lab at Dickinson. The lab works on acute myeloid leukemia (a type of blood cancer). I love this work because it allows me to use my skills to help other people and hopefully help save at least one life in my lifetime.
