Go to the Computer Science Department  

Computing and application software play an important role in virtually any major and any career choice. The primary goal of the Computer Science Minor is to provide an introduction to computing topics that can be used by students in all majors to supplement their primary area of study by acquiring the computing skills and understanding necessary to take maximum advantage of software applications both general and discipline-focused. This minor guides students in developing skills and understanding in the following areas:

  • fundamental concepts of computer science, including systems, algorithms, programming languages, and application software;
  • programming skills including sound design methodologies, a programming language and its major constructs, and testing and performance evaluation;
  • additional computing topics chosen to complement individual interests and/or specific disciplinary software that may give students a major edge in future employment - choices include web-based software development, embedded systems, databases, networking, software engineering, and data visualization. For a list of full possibilities, go to the Computer Science Major  page.

The Computer Science Minor is appropriate for students who anticipate that computing knowledge and skills will have a prominent role to play in their academic and professional careers. For additional information go to the Computer Science Department  website.

The minor in Computer Studies consists of five courses (17-19 credits):
