Skills for the 21st Century
Dominican University of California has developed an innovative minor that pairs a liberal arts or pre-professional degree with cutting-edge coding skills. The program’s curriculum, developed with input from leading tech employers including Etsy, Lyft, and LinkedIn, is designed to equip graduates with hard and soft skills to compete in an increasingly digital world.
Dominican's minor in computer science allows Dominican students, regardless of major, to infuse computer science skills into their educational experience.
The minor equips students with coding and programming skills to develop software, and both web-based and mobile applications. It is cross-disciplinary and accessible to students in any major. Courses are taught at Dominican's San Rafael campus by both Dominican faculty and faculty from the Make School.
Dominican and Make School are creating an academic partnership unlike any other in the nation. Both of our institutions are focused on designing academic programs that are relevant, rooted in real-world active learning experiences, and prepare students both academically and emotionally for career success.” — President Mary B. Marcy.
