With a parallel engagement in equity/justice, technological skills, and pedagogy, this supplementary authorization helps students to:

  • Explore big issues of equity and social impacts of CS 
  • Learn core CS practices, theories, tools, and skills
  • Gain programming experience 
  • Learn how to critique, revise (existing) and design lessons and CS curricula
