Google Applied Computing Series

Students in computer class

Google logoHaving been a member of a collaborative partnership with Google during the 2019-20 academic year, Hollins University is offering a two-semester Applied Computing Series, an initiative that is designed to increase undergraduate access to computer and data science education by leveraging new technologies and teaching techniques. 

“Through hands-on learning and faculty-supported collaborative project work, students from all majors will have the opportunity to gain practical know-how in programming languages and learn how to make data-informed decisions in their chosen fields of study.”
