PINC (Promoting Inclusivity In Computing) is a unique educational opportunity at San Francisco State University designed to lower the barriers that biology students experience in learning computer science skills. No prior computer science experience is needed to join, and all classes in the series are taken with fellow biology students. Students are also supported by faculty mentors and weekly tutoring by CS graduate students. Completion of the five courses (15 units total) in the PINC curriculum allows students to earn an “Emphasis in Computer Science”.
The PINC Curriculum (15 units):
CSc 306 – Computing for Biologists
CSc 220 – Data Structures and Algorithms
CSc 307 – Web and Databases for Biologists
CSc 690 – Two special topic courses, lectures & independent research project
We are looking for motivated students to apply and join our Fall 2017 cohort! The application, due APRIL 28, 2017 is available at the link below:
