The minor in computer science is designed to give the student of any discipline an excellent working knowledge of the field. A student with a computer science minor will be able to integrate the practices of his or her major field of study with the growing area of computers.
The minor gives the student complete background knowledge of software design and of tools available to those working in the computer field.
The computer science minor requires the completion of six courses (18 credits), which include:
CS 101 Fundamentals of Computer and Information Sciences
CS 102 Programming I
CS 117 Programming II
CS 118 Computer Architecture
CS 130 Algorithms and Data Structures
CS 150 Operating Systems
It is suggested that students begin a computer science minor in the sophomore year because of the prerequisite dependencies in the above courses.
