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 theoretical foundations that support current technology and will guide its future development.  Learn More...
