At Wheaton, the new curriculum features Connections, an exciting way to explore different areas of knowledge and different approaches to problems. All Wheaton students must take either two sets of two-course connections (a total of four courses), or one set of three connected courses. Courses are linked across any two of six academic areas: creative arts, humanities, history, natural sciences, social sciences, and math and computer science.
In our Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, connections to and with other disciplines has always been a natural and the Computer Science faculty are participating in an impressive suite of innovative connections. Check 'em out:
