Computer science as liberal arts 'enabler'
from Inside Higher Ed
Computer science might not be the first field that springs to mind when thinking of the liberal arts, but at some colleges, interdisciplinary computing is seen as one way to connect the department to other disciplines on campus. Bates College, a liberal arts college in Maine, may be the most recent example. The college, which enrolls about 2,000 students, doesn't offer anything resembling a computer science program — not even a concentration. Given the chance to create one from scratch, the college will in 2017 introduce digital and computational studies, an interdisciplinary program that fits the label of neither computer science nor digital humanities.
