Computer Science Department
Expertise in computing helps you even if your primary career choice is something else.
According to the Association of Computing Machinery:
"Having a computing major will provide you with a foundation of knowledge, problem solving and logical thinking that will serve as a competitive advantage to you in your career, in whatever field you choose."
Many DePauw graduates pursue traditional computer science careers in software development, consulting, or systems design. However, many other graduates have decided to become teachers (K12 and college), doctors, lawyers (including patent law), entrepreneurs and small business owners. We have even occasionally had graduates choose such diverse fields as acting, music and restaurant management. A DePauw computer science major in the context of a liberal arts education prepares students to do just about anything.
