Hey, New York Times! Still Looking for a Seat in a Computer Science Class?
The New York Times published an article on January 24, 2019, stating that the toughest part about getting a degree in computer science was getting a seat in class. According to journalist Natasha Singer, the degree program is so popular that demand far exceeds the capacity of many universities around the country to accommodate them.
Well, we at the Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems at Pace University wanted to let you know that we have seats available for you! While it’s true that our “little” school has been growing steadily over the past five years, we have gone to great lengths to ensure that there are classes at decent times, with great faculty, and in the hottest topics in tech, for our students to take.
