ArsDigita University Curriculum
About the Curriculum
The curriculum was modeled on the undergraduate CS program at MIT. Several of the courses were straightforward adoptions of MIT courses. A few were specifically designed for the program, which was roughly in line with the ACM's 2001 Model Curricula for Computing. The process of accreditation (ACM or CSAB/ABET) would have been pursued if the program had continued.
