## Mission

Barnard’s Computer Science department offers meaningful computing education and experiences to all Barnard students and partners with Columbia's Computer Science department to offer a major and minor in Computer Science. The department aims to expand students' use and understanding of computation and data analysis across disciplines; offer students opportunities to think critically about the social implications of technology, including how to harness it for social good; promote curricular and pedagogical advances in computer science and its multidisciplinary applications; and provide new models for engaging students and enhancing diversity in computing.

## Student Learning Outcomes

Computer Science majors at Barnard study the foundations and applications of computing, as well as addressing the societal implications of computing technology. In conjunction with Columbia, a broad range of upper-level courses is available in topics including artificial intelligence, natural language processing, algorithms and complexity, cybersecurity, databases, user interfaces, and programming languages. Through these courses, students acquire the kind of flexibility needed in a rapidly changing field; they are prepared to engage in both applied and theoretical developments in computer science as they happen.

## Programs of Study

The Computer Science department offers the following programs of study:

- Major in Computer Science
- Minor in Computer Science

For the Major in Mathematics-Computer Science, see Mathematics.

## Student Advising

#### Advising Resources

- All Computer Science majors at Barnard are assigned a full-time faculty member from Barnard's Computer Science department as a major advisor. The major adviser can assist students in planning a program focused on personal interests while meeting major requirements.
- Students who wish to declare a special major (including Information Science or Data Science) should contact Prof. Smaranda Muresan.
- All Barnard CS majors are given an individualized CS Major Progress Check List, which is shared with their CS adviser, the CS chair, and the CS administrator.
- The department regularly holds an Open House/Program Planning Meeting every semester. For more information about this and other department events, see https://cs.barnard.edu/events.

#### Guidance for First-Year Students

Students with no background in computer science may wish to take Introduction to Computational Thinking and Data Science COMS BC1016 and corequisite lab COMS BC1017, though it is not required.

#### Enrolling in Courses

- Prerequisite courses for Mathematics Requirement: MATH UN1201 (Calculus III) requires Calculus I as a prerequisite but does NOT require Calculus II. MATH UN1205 and APMA E2000, however, require both Calculus I and Calculus II as prerequisites.
- Most of our COMS BC3000-level courses have a “waitlist form” that needs to be filled out to be considered for the course, in addition to joining the waitlist. The links to the forms can be found under each course in SSOL and the Course Directory.
- COMS BC3997 New Directions in Computing is an undergraduate seminar for special topics in computing arranged as the need and availability arises. Topics are usually offered on a one-time basis, and the title of each section reflects the topic. Participation requires permission of the instructor. Since the content of this course changes each time it is offered, it may be repeated for credit with different topics.

#### Preparation for Graduate Study

Many Computer Science graduates step directly into career positions in computer science across industry and the public sectors, while others continue their formal education in graduate degree programs, including masters degrees and PhDs in Computer Science, as well as other pathways such as law school. The Computer Science 4+1 BA/MS Pathway is a special opportunity for students who wish to pursue an accelerated masters degree.

#### Computer Science 4+1 BA/MS Pathway

The Barnard/Columbia University 4+1 Pathways provide an option for students to make progress on graduate study while still an undergraduate, under the guidance of Barnard and Columbia advisors who help them develop their plans for accelerated completion of a masters degree. The Computer Science 4+1 pathway enables Barnard students to obtain a BA from Barnard and an MS from Columbia in a combined five years.

Barnard students majoring or minoring in Computer Science are eligible to apply for the Computer Science 4+1 pathway during their junior year. Accepted students will be given a Barnard Computer Science 4+1 advisor and have access to Columbia MS advisors; they can work with their Barnard and Columbia advisors to determine a study plan to enable completion of the MS in their 5th year.

For more information and application requirements, see cs.barnard.edu/4-1-computer-science.

## Coursework Taken Outside of Barnard

#### Advanced Placement Credit

The Computer Science department does not grant any course exemptions for AP or other exam scores.

#### Computer Science Courses at Columbia University

Part of the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, the Department of Computer Science at Columbia University provides many of the courses Barnard Computer Science students need to fulfill their major or minor requirements. There is no restriction on the number of courses that may be taken at Columbia for the programs of study in Computer Science at Barnard.

#### Transfer Credit

- When students wish to transfer credit to Barnard from other institutions, their coursework is first evaluated for college elective credit by the Registrar’s Office. If they are approved, departments can consider these courses for credit toward the major or minor.
- Transfer coursework can count in place of a major requirement if they can be deemed equivalent to a Barnard or Columbia class that counts for a requirement. They might also be countable as a COMS elective if they are a clear fit even if they are not equivalent to one of our classes, so long as you do not also take a Barnard or Columbia class that substantially overlaps with the content.
- No more than 6 transfer courses can count for the major and no more than 3 transfer courses can count for the minor.
- Computer science courses must be evaluated by Barnard’s or Columbia’s Computer Science department and mathematics courses must be evaluated by Barnard’s Mathematics department. Please contact the department for more information.

#### Study Abroad Credit

- Classes taken abroad through Columbia-led programs (i.e., those administered by Columbia’s Center for Global Engagement) are treated as Columbia courses, equivalent to those taken on the Morningside Heights campus.
- Classes taken abroad through other institutions or programs are treated as transfer credit and are subject to the same policies as other transfer courses. Accordingly, there will be a limit on the number of study abroad courses taken at other institutions that can be counted toward the major or minor.
- To receive credit toward the major or minor for a study abroad course (whether taken through a Columbia program or another institution/program), students must submit a Study Abroad Approval form through Slate and obtain the approval of the Chair or departmental representative.

#### Summer Credit

- Summer courses at Barnard are equivalent to Barnard courses taken during the academic year.
- Summer courses taken at other institutions (including Columbia) are considered transfer credit and are subject to the same policies governing other transfer courses. To receive major or minor credit for a summer course taken at another institution, students must submit a Summer Course form through Slate and have it approved by both the Registrar’s Office and the Chair or department representative.

## Other Important Information

#### The Vagelos Computational Science Center

Computer Science works in close partnership with the Vagelos Computational Science Center (CSC), Barnard's home for powerful, interdisciplinary data exploration located on the 5th Floor of the Milstein Center. The CSC aims to prepare students for the dynamic and rapidly shifting world of computational science and technology. It facilitates students’ understanding of computational methods, application development, and general technological knowledge through its workshop series, public events, outreach, and projects. The CSC also serves as a resource for the greater Barnard community by providing students, researchers, faculty, and staff the tools and resources they need for the advancement of their scholarship and curricular development.

#### CS Help Room

Students in introductory and intermediate undergraduate courses in computer science can receive one-on-one tutoring through Barnard’s Computer Science Help Room.

For a description of the joint Major in Mathematics—Computer Science, see Mathematics.

## Minor in Computer Science

Barnard students can declare a minor only once they have all of the required courses completed or in progress, and this must be done by March 1 of the senior year. Courses for the major and minor may not overlap. (The minor department chair can request an exception to this policy for a maximum of two overlapping courses if the minor requires more than 18 credits, the major requires more than 40 credits, and the overlapping courses are explicitly required for both.)

To declare Computer Science as a minor, submit a minor declaration form via Slate.

The Computer Science minor consists of the following six courses (a minimum of 19 points):

- COMS W1004 Introduction to Computer Science and Programming in Java (3pts)
- COMS W3134 Data Structures in Java (3pts) or COMS W3137 HONORS DATA STRUCTURES ＆ ALGOL (4pts)
- COMS W3203 DISCRETE MATHEMATICS (4pts)

**COMS BC3159 Parallel Optimization for Robotics.** *3.00 points*.

Many stages of state-of-the-art robotics pipelines rely on the solutions of underlying optimization algorithms. Unfortunately, many of these approaches rely on simplifications and conservative approximations in order to reduce their computational complexity and support online operation. At the same time, parallelism has been used to significantly increase the throughput of computationally expensive algorithms across the field of computer science. And, with the widespread adoption of parallel computing platforms such as GPUs, it is natural to consider whether these architectures can benefit robotics researchers interested in solving computationally constrained problems online. This course will provide students with an introduction to both parallel programming on CPUs and GPUs as well as optimization algorithms for robotics applications. It will then dive into the intersection of those fields through case studies of recent state-of-the-art research and culminate in a team-based final project

**COMS BC3420 PRIVACY IN A NETWORKED WORLD.** *4.00 points*.

The ubiquity of computers and networks in business, government, recreation, and almost all aspects of daily life has led to a proliferation of online sensitive data: data that, if used improperly, can harm the data subjects. As a result, concern about the use, ownership, control, privacy, and accuracy of these data has become a top priority. This seminar course focuses on both the technical challenges of handling sensitive data, the privacy implications of various technologies, and the policy and legal issues facing data subjects, data owners, and data users

**COMS BC3430 Computational Sound.** *3.00 points*.

In this course, we explore the variety of roles that computation can play in the analysis, creation, and performance of music. We start with the fundamentals of sound in the digital domain, covering issues of representation and audio synthesis. We then move through various synthesis techniques including the additive, subtractive, frequency modulation (FM), and amplitude modulation (AM) synthesis. After covering some core DSP techniques, we put these concepts into performative practice by exploring “live coding”. In the space of live coding, we examine various programming language designs to understand how various domain specific languages (DSLs) support live coding. For the third module, we turn our focus to automated composition and analysis, addressing challenges in music information retrieval, generative art, and autonomous improvisation systems. All the while, we continue to develop our fluency in live coding by putting new topics to practice
