Computer Science Minors

The Computer Science Department offers the following minors:

  • Computer Science: a 19-credit minor consisting of most Computer Science core courses.
  • Information Technology: contains the basic concepts of Computer Science with less focus on programming.

To enroll in a minor program, a student must submit a completed and signed Application for Minor form (Undergraduate Studies) to the Office of the Registrar. For more information, please contact the Chairperson of the Computer Science Department.

Computer Science Minor

The Computer Science Minor consists of 19 credits consisting of the following six required courses:

Course Number Course Title Credits
CSC 141 Computer Science I 3
CSC 142 Computer Science II 3
MAT 151 Introduction to Discrete Mathematics 3
MAT 161 Calculus I 4
CSC 240 Computer Science III 3
CSC 241 Data Structures and Algorithms 3

Introduction to Discrete Mathematics (MAT 151) counts towards General Education

In addition, at least one 300-level CSC classroom course is strongly recommended. A student must earn a minimum grade of C- in each course and a minimum overall GPA of 2.0 in all courses taken for the minor.
