Subject overview

Computer Science is an incredibly diverse field which spans a broad range of topics, some of which are very mathematical in nature while others are very applied and look at how we can build new technologies. This enables people with many different backgrounds to come together to solve meaningful problems. At the University of Warwick, we teach Computer Science to many of the brightest students in the country who are passionate about wanting to learn how to apply their mathematical skills to such problems. During the Summer School, some of the lecturers you would have as a student here will explore key topics from our undergraduate curriculum with you, such as the foundations of Computer Science, algorithms, Cyber Security, and Data Science. Students will participate in a series of explanatory and practical sessions. No prior knowledge of Computer Science or programming is required.

Teaching and learning on the Summer School take the form of lectures, interactive seminars and group project work – just as on the full-time undergraduate degree programme. Thus the summer school helps participants find out what it is like to be an Economics student at the University of Warwick. The course aims to be inspirational and to give students insights both into the subject matter of Economics and how it is taught and studied at University. And as economic forces are at the heart of so many of the world’s most pressing problems (from poverty to conflict to global warming), there has never been a more exciting time to study it!

The Historical and Cultural Studies stream allows students to explore the disciplines involved in making sense of human experiences, past and present, in a way that reflects the diversity of the University of Warwick's undergraduate teaching. We will investigate a wide variety of periods and cultures from Ancient History to the present. On this stream, you will examine particular historical moments from a range of different perspectives, asking questions about politics, society, language, and culture, and analysing different types of evidence, from archive documents and literature to visual images and artefacts. In doing so, you will work with experts engaged in making sense of human cultures from across the Arts Faculty: specialists in the Departments of History, Classics, Modern Languages, and Liberal Arts. Studying on this stream will be a great experience for anybody thinking of studying human societies and cultures at university and will also offer students new insight into their own relationship with history and the cultures and languages which they may already be studying.
