Reed declares new majors

In November, the faculty voted to broaden Reed’s curriculum by approving a new major in comparative literature, and two new concentrations in the mathematics department: mathematics-computer science and mathematics-statistics. All three tracks will be in place by fall 2015. (And it looks like a standalone dance major is also on the way.)

“Reed has a long and proud tradition of integrating computers in meaningful ways into the liberal arts,” says department chair, Prof. Irena Swanson ’87 [mathematics 2005–]. “It is now recognizing computer science as a field of study with academic methods of its own and with great interdisciplinary connections.”
