Computer and Information Sciences Department

Computer Science students with faculty in lab

The Computer and Information Sciences Department prepares you to solve problems by providing a balance of technology with liberal arts.  Whatever your interest in the computing field, Hartwick’s dedicated computer science faculty will help you to achieve things you never knew you were capable of. The job market for computer and information science graduates continues to grow. Our students have a tremendous track record of getting into top tier graduate schools and excelling once they are there. Study with us and become an innovator and inventor for the 21st century!


Please note: Hartwick College focuses on offering fall, January, and spring term undergraduate courses in person, however circumstances may require us to offer a small number of courses in this department through distance education. In times of emergency, following regulatory guidelines, all classes may temporarily need to be delivered through distance education, including online. We also offer a slate of courses online in the summer to help our students make progress towards their degrees. With support from an academic advisor, students needing particular courses may have other online options as well. If you have questions about the way courses are delivered in your program, please contact your Department or Program Chair.

“I think everybody in this country should learn how to program a computer because it teaches you how to think.”
