Threads in Computer Science

The computer science department at Georgia Tech has done a fairly radical re-work of its curriculum to try to change the field's reputation and attract more students to the program. A key part of the new program is to emphasize "threads"  that let people choose a set of courses that focus on a particular application of computer: gaming, the sciences, etc. They think this does a better job of supporting interdisciplinary work, and will keep people focused and excited.
