At one time, running a first-tier computer science program required a large financial outlay that limited these programs to large, typically state-funded institutions. In recent years, however, the software needed for a computer science program has become, for the most part, free, and the computer hardware needed has come into common use.

Overview

The major limitation for a quality computer science program now is the faculty available to teach. It has become apparent that teaching computer science is not well-suited to large classes. Many experts suggest that hands-on apprenticeships and one-on-one mentoring are more appropriate approaches to learning to program.

 

The small class sizes and extensive student-faculty involvement at Covenant College provide a superior environment for learning computer science.

 

In addition, most programs in scientific and technical disciplines pretend that skills and information can be taught in a value-free manner. This is never the case. In fact, the assertion that some field of human endeavor can be held apart from and exist independently of God is a profound moral choice, regardless of the denials of those claiming moral neutrality.

 

At Covenant, our computer science students receive a thorough grounding in Christian teaching and worldview through Covenant's in-depth core curriculum. In addition, the relationship between computer science and Christianity is examined throughout the computer science curriculum.
