Today, computers are as personal and accessible as you want them to be. The computer science minor instructs students in the use of popular packages, operating systems, and programming languages.
This program uses projects that are based on real-life computational situations. This minor will help the student master key concepts and problem-solving techniques while creating documents (or computer programs) based on a mix of academic, business, and real-life situations. There are six courses after showing competency, for a total of 18 credits. Three of these courses are required, and three are electives. Of the 18 credits, a minimum of 12 credits of minor coursework must be completed in addition to any courses (required courses or program electives) included in the major curriculum.
Please note, if a student has transfer credits he/she would like to apply toward the minor, department approval must be obtained. Up to six transfer credits may be used toward the minor.
Interested students should apply to the minor program early in their academic career, usually by the fifth semester of college work, but no later than the end of the drop/add period of the first semester of their last year of didactic work.
