Programming languages in a liberal arts education
Liberal arts curricula emphasize breadth of a student's educational experience, critical reasoning, and intellectual discourse to a greater degree than pre-professional training or engineering programs. This substantially impacts how the topic of programming languages (and computer science in general) is taught. We highlight some key aspects of teaching programming languages in a liberal arts program, and we discuss why we believe this approach prepares students for problems they will encounter throughout their careers.
