A world-class faculty of scholars are fully engaged with their students intellectual development, and an open curriculum encourages each student to explore many fields of knowledge. Computer Science is one of Smith College's youngest departments. About fifteen students graduate each year with a major in computer science. Smith College was founded at a time when there were practically no choices for women who wanted an education equal to that available to men.

The study of computer science involves both the theory and the practice of solving problems by computer. It describes the analysis, design, implementation, and application of algorithms in order to solve complex problems. While computer science requires the study and use of several programming languages, the discipline as a whole encompasses much more; theoretical and practical mathematics, design and analysis of algorithms, and modeling of large systems are all part of computer science.
