The Biology and Computer Science departments at SF State are excited to announce a new program: Promoting Inclusivity in Computing (PINC) with the goal of attracting and supporting more Biology students to Computer Science.

A few faculty members from the Biology department have joined forces with the Computer Science department to design a program that lowers the barriers that Biology students experience in learning computer science skills. This program will expose students to basic computing topics such as web design, mobile app development, data structures, and algorithms. All classes in the PINC program are new and especially designed for biologists.

In the PINC program, biology majors will complete 15 units of computer science course work (5 courses spread over 4 semesters) that will allow the students to earn an “Emphasis in Computer Science”.
