Certificate programs: The Computational Science and Quantitative World Modeling pathway introduces students to modeling techniques and provides a solid founding in the quantitative simulation, evaluation, and prediction of natural and social phenomena such as the collision of galaxies, protein folding and the behavior of markets.  Its principal pedagogical and intellectual goal is to make students aware of the power of the quantitative, algorithmic method for understanding the world.  Students can use this experience as an enrichment of their major and liberal arts education or as a stepping stone to pursue, if desired, a more intensive specialization in any of Wesleyan's quantitative reasoning departments. 

Sample Courses:  Computer Structure and Operation; Introduction to Computational Physics; Data Structures; Algorithms; Modeling Biochemical and Biological Systems; Formal Languages and Automata; Mathematical Economics
