Thinking Technologically and Digitally
Every Barnard student must learn to think technologically and digitally as part of the Foundations curriculum. Barnard’s core mission is to rigorously educate and empower women, providing them with the ability to think critically, discern, and move effectively in the world. The Foundations curriculum prepares our students to understand the innate value in testing and investigating ideas, and in building knowledge. It provides students with the breadth and depth of study central to an education in the arts and humanities and the natural and social sciences—with explorations of international and global learning; quantitative, qualitative, and empirical reasoning; and a distinct technology requirement that sets us apart.
Students can satisfy the "Thinking Technologically and Digitally” requirement through a variety of courses, including many computer science courses and courses in other disciplines.
