CORE COURSES

Artificial Neural Networks and Deep Learning
Fall/Spring, 3 Credits 
Artificial Neural Networks are programs that write themselves when given an objective, some training data, and abundant computing power. Recently, these programs have brought about a wide array of future-like innovations, such as self-driving cars, face recognition, and human-like speech generators. This course offers you an introduction to Deep Artificial Neural Networks (i.e. “Deep Learning”). With focus on both theory and practice, we cover models for various applications, how they are trained and tested, and how they can be deployed in real-world applications. 
Week-Long Study Tour: London 
Core Course Week: Denmark  
Prerequisites: One year of computer science and one course in either probability theory or linear algebra at university level. Practical programming experience in Python or similar is recommended.
 

Game Development: Programming and Practice + Lab
Fall/Spring, 6 Credits (3-Credit Course + 3-Credit Lab) 
This course provides an overview of the phases of game development, with a focus on the pre-production and production phase. You identify and discuss the components within computer science that assist in game development. Additionally, you have opportunity to meet professional developers in the field.
Week-Long Study Tour: Berlin-Hamburg or Berlin-Frankfurt 
Core Course Week: Denmark 
Prerequisites: One year of computer science and one calculus course at university level. Knowledge of at least one programming language such as Java, C#, C, C++, or JavaScript.
Corequisite: Game Development Lab
 



For Gustavus Adolphus students: DIS uses US semester credits. Each GAC unit = 4 US semester credits. Thus, most DIS courses, which are worth 3 US semester credits each, are worth 0.75 GAC units. Be sure to discuss the irregular unit totals with your advisors as you select courses.
