Computer Science Minor

Required courses:
  • MATH 118 or 119 or 120;
  • CSCI 130 or 140 or 150;
  • CSCI 160;
  • Twelve additional computer science credits of which at least 4 are at the 300 level. Internship credits (CSCI 397) cannot be counted toward the minor but can be used for elective credits toward graduation.

Students who complete MATH 120 may substitute MATH 239 for CSCI 239. Students primarily interested in business computing should take 230 and at least one of 312, 330 or 331; those interested in computing systems should take 310 and either 312, 350 or both; those interested in theoretical computer science should take 338 and 339.
