Computer Science

Connect your passion for programming with the needs of the world

In courses ranging from Computer Security to Principles of AI to Algorithm Development, Holy Cross computer science minors hone their programming skills and learn to apply the latest technology to real-world problems.

For example, during the 18 to 20 credit hours required to earn a computer science minor you might:

  • Intern with a local tech startup in South Bend (100 percent of Holy Cross students intern before they graduate)
  • Gain hands-on experience in Holy Cross’ computer lab
  • Conduct research alongside Notre Dame or Saint Mary’s College students (you’ll have access to all the resources afforded by our tri-campus community
  • Become adept at a number of programming languages, including Python, Java, and C++
  • Benefit from personalized attention in small classes (our average class size is 14)

When you graduate with a minor in computer science from Holy Cross, you will be prepared to work in a range of industries, from education and government to corporations and nonprofit organizations.
