  • Computer Science at Hamline

    Computer science at Hamline is seen both as a tool to be used in many different areas and as a course of study in its own right. 

    Through courses which are designated as computer intensive courses, students become acquainted with the computer as a tool. Through computer science courses, students gain an understanding of not only the tools that are on the computer but how to build their own specialized tools.

    The needs of the computer science minor are met by courses that may include:


    • detailed knowledge of programming
    • a technical understanding of digital electronics
    • work in data structures and algorithm design


    Some of the courses in these areas are cross-listed with courses in other departments such as physics and mathematics.  

    Through Hamline’s flexible curriculum option, students can major in computer science. Students interested in this major should contact the director of the computer science program. 

    Computer science program director: Ken Takata, mathematics.
