"The Department of Computer Science, at William & Mary, offers BA/BS, MS, and PhD degrees. Faculty research interests include: algorithms, computer systems, high performance computing, modeling and simulation, networks, programming languages and compilers, scientific computing, and security. The department maintains a state-of-the-art computing environment for experimental research and education."
Computer Science was a sub-program under Mathematics until the late 1970s, a standard practice in higher education until 1968. Prior to the department separating from the mathematics, the College offered introductory courses and required students to take the computer courses.
