Spring 2021

Taught By: Frank Shepard

Section: A

CRN: 3037

Credits: 3

[Track M, C, S] This course provides a basic introduction to programming for liberal arts students with no previous experience. It includes an introduction to the history and philosophy of computation, an engagement with critical approaches to assessing the social impact of computation, an introduction to the philosophy of artificial intelligence, as well as some hands-on experience in writing your own code. The course aims to give students familiarity with the history, philosophy, and practice of coding, and experience in writing basic programs that will actually run. This course fulfills the same requirement in the Screen Studies and Culture & Media majors as Media Toolkit. Access to your own laptop is very useful for the completion of class and course work. This is an Integrative course. [Track M, C, S]
