Welcome to CS 1120

CS 1120 provides an introduction to computer science. It assumes no previous background beyond experience with email. The class focuses on describing and reasoning about information processes using language and logic. We will incorporate motivating examples from the liberal arts and sciences areas such as art, biology, economics, narrative, physics, and sociology.

CS 1120 is not required for College students majoring in Computer Science. Students make meet the prerequisites for the major by taking CS 1120, CS 1110, CS 1111, or CS 1112 with a grade of C+ or better.

CS 1120 is a great course — and a difficult course. It is open to all College students.
