Berea College

Berea College

Berea College, founded by ardent abolitionists and radical reformers, continues today as an educational institution still firmly rooted in its historic purpose “to promote the cause of Christ.” Adherence to the College’s scriptural foundation, “God has made of one blood all peoples of the earth,” shapes the College’s culture and programs so that students and staff alike can work toward both personal goals and a vision of a world shaped by Christian values, such as the power of love over hate, human dignity and equality, and peace with justice. This environment frees persons to be active learners, workers, and servers as members of the academic community and as citizens of the world. 

Berea’s Computer Science Program is well-known for its caring faculty and strong curriculum. The Program offers a major in Computer and Information Science with three different choices of concentrations as well as a minor in Computer Science.

The Program also supports students in a variety of ways outside of our traditional classroom programs. Each year, many computer science students are placed in a wide variety of research and internship programs.
