The roster of revolutionary CS + X degrees is growing by four this fall with the additions of bachelor’s degrees in CS + Advertising, CS + Economics, CS + Geography & Geographic Information Science, and CS + Philosophy.

Illinois Computer Science is joining with the Charles H. Sandage Department of AdvertisingDepartment of EconomicsDepartment of Geography and Geographic Information Science, and the Department of Philosophy to offer the four new blended undergraduate degrees.

The CS + X degrees, many the firsts of their kind, offer a solid grounding in computer science with training in the arts or sciences that allows students to bring computational skills to fields where they are increasingly in demand.

The four new degrees join existing bachelor’s degrees in CS + Anthropology, CS + Astronomy, CS + Chemistry, CS + Crop Sciences, CS + Linguistics, and CS + Music, as well as two other blended bachelor’s degrees: Mathematics & Computer Science, which has been offered since 1964, and Statistics & Computer Science, added in 1988.  Read the Full Story Published by David Mercer, Illinois Computer Science
