Visiting our campus is one of the best ways to get a feel for Goshen — from classes and dorms to the dining hall menu — and decide if it’s a good fit for you. We are a friendly community where people are happy to answer your questions and show you around.
Computers are changing the way we approach many problems: disease diagnosis and treatment, ecological collapse, ethnic and religious conflict, resource distribution, goods production and more. Do you have the passion to help solve these problems using computers? Informatics is the science of creating, storing, retrieving, changing and sharing information in ways that help everyone solve problems and better understand the world. At Goshen, you will learn how to leverage computing knowledge to explore your passions.
At GC, we’ve designed a program that blends computer science with a cognate area of your choice. The five possible choices are business, biology, communication, mathematics, and peace, justice and conflict studies (PJCS). The PJCS cognate is a distinctive GC program not offered by any other college. Once you choose a concentration, you’ll use computers to solve problems specific to your area.
As an informatics student, you’ll find many co-curricular opportunities on campus to gain practical experience, whether it’s designing apps, programming websites or working at the Information Technology Services help desk. By the time you graduate, you’ll be ready to take on graduate school or a rewarding career in the rapidly evolving digital world!
