    Yes, but you have to take the Columbia College version of Computer Science. It has some differences and fewer CS requirements, but the basics are the same.

    CS degrees are offered by both Columbia College (CC) and School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS). CC offers several versions of the BA degree while SEAS grants the BS degree:

    The two degrees have slightly different requirements. The CS courses the BA degree requires are basically just a subset of the courses the BS degree requires, but you're free to take the other courses on your own. Which ever degree you pursue, the courses are the same, offered by the same Computer Science Dept at SEAS. There's no separate CS dept at CC.

    Read the degree requirements carefully. Double major is difficult at Columbia. Mainly because of Core requirements. Trying to fit in all of the requirements for 2 majors + core is difficult. If you enroll in Columbia College instead of SEAS, you'll have the option of doing a concentration instead of a major.
