Computer Science Minor

The minor in computer science allows students to combine their study of software development with majors in their desired areas of application, preparing the students for various professional positions that involve computer programming as a component.

All prerequisites must be completed prior to enrollment in the following courses.

Required Core Courses (18 hours):
CSCI 251: Introduction to Computer Science
CSCI 261: Data Structures
CSCI 277: Web and Mobile Application Development
CSCI 355: Database
CSCI 371: Software Engineering
CSCI 395: Applied Projects

Students interested in graduate school in computer science are encouraged to complete a minor in mathematics, including linear algebra and differential equations. Graduate study in analysis of algorithms and the study of computability theory require an advanced understanding of mathematics.
