Mills has a distinguished record in computer science education.

Mills was the first women's college and one of the first liberal arts colleges to offer an undergraduate degree in computer science and to establish a Department of Mathematics and Computer Science. The Department offers a unique graduate degree in Interdisciplinary Computer Science for students with undergraduate degrees in other fields that they wish to combine with computer science. Mills graduates have been hired by Apple, Google, Salesforce, Splunk, Twitter, and other top companies; joined non-profit organizations, such as AnitaB.org, Mission Bit, and Mozilla; and been admitted to PhD programs at CMU, MIT, UC Berkeley, UCSD, University of Virginia, and University of Washington.
