In this introductory course for those with no experience in computer science, students will explore the world of programming by learning the fundamental syntax and meaning of the Python programming language. This course will introduce the general theories of computer programming and explore basic Python concepts. We will cover various concepts including control structures, repetitive tasks/loops, arrays, lists, and functions through a pragmatic course project. By the end of the course, students will be able to write and build a program using Python and figure out how to solve a problem in a programmatic way.

No programming experience is necessary. Students must be familiar with computer basics. Please note: CS 46 will be offered on campus and CS 46 W will be offered online. Both courses will cover the same introductory content.
