Reed offers a Computer Science  major, a standing Mathematics/Computer Science  interdisciplinary major, and a Computer Science Minor . The CSCI 121 - Computer Science Fundamentals I  and CSCI 221 - Computer Science Fundamentals II  courses introduce students to the discipline, each providing a significant foundation in programming and each preparing students for the core coursework in algorithms, theory of computation, and computing systems. These core courses lead to a variety of subdisciplines of computer science, surveyed in upper-level elective courses. Students are also expected to take several mathematics courses. Computer science is a very mathematical discipline and this skill in mathematics is used throughout the curriculum.
