The Computer Science program at the Smith College prepares students to lead in a world experiencing sweeping technological change. Students choosing to major in computer science can look forward to a career in one of the many fields to which computer technology has become vital.


The Computer Science program at the Smith College has students who are very active in the department. Three liaisons attend department faculty meetings, and run monthly social gatherings such as movie night and game night. 

A student-led club organizes career-oriented training and offers community outreach via a local chapter of Girls Who Code. Many students work as teaching assistants, running help sessions, grading, and aiding students during teaching labs. Many students also do research as special studies, as research grant assistants, or as honors theses. 


Computer Science enjoys the use of several dedicated classrooms and research facilities in Ford Hall. Installed machines include multiple-boot workstations as well as dedicated computing clusters. Our student lounge provides comfortable furniture, toys, and refrigeration for students looking for a break from their work.
