Computer Science, English, Reading and Writing

A pile of books

English matters to Computer Scientists too

The best computer scientists aren't just good at writing code, they are good at writing english too. Any graduate does - being good at communicating is part of the job.

There's also a whole new breed of computer scientists that are interested in English in a deep way. They are in the business of understanding how people communicate so that computers can better understand us - so they can make computers communicate in naturally human ways for example.

Other computer scientists are trying to invent algorithms that encapsulate what creative writing is all about: creating programs that can write stories, love letters, jokes, tweets...

The overlap between English and Computer Science is where all the creativity is!
