Technology, Information, Theory & Systems

The Department of Computer Science is located at Hunter's 68th street campus on the upper east side of Manhattan. Providing students with outstanding preparation both for employment as computer professionals and for future graduate study, the department expects students to construct creative solutions to challenging problems in a variety of contexts. The small but diverse faculty works closely with students in an open and collegial atmosphere. Our curriculum focuses on hands-on programming skills as well as the mathematics of computer science— the theoretical foundations that support current technology and will guide its future development.

Welcome back students!

The CSCI Department would like to express our pleasure at welcoming you back (just welcoming for new students!) to Hunter for the Fall 2020 semester. We understand the difficulty of both the Spring 2020 semester and also Fall 2020. We are constantly working hard to best accomodate your needs while providing the best learning experience for our students. Please check for student resources provided by Hunter College, and feel free to reach out to us as well!



Students are advised when encountering problems with the CSCI Department's LINU Lab, a new e-mail account has been established:

  • Send all enquiries from your @myhunter account/sign in using your full name as it appears on CUNYfirst;
  • Include your COMPSCI user name;
  • Include the exact command you're using;
  • Include the exact error message you're getting;
  • Include the name of the ecomputer in the LINUX lab you're trying to log onto or the IP address of the remote computer you're trying to log in from. 


Learn about its rules, policies and regulations (and prevent your account from being inadvertently annulled) and download schedules for the "B"-Lab" and Room 1000-J to find room availability for the Spring 2019 semester.


Learning Goals for Computer Science Students:

Hunter College has asked each department to develop a plan for assessing how well it does in teaching its majors. Read more...
