Computer Science Minor Requirements
2022 - 2023 Catalog
Computer Science minor
A minor in computer science requires six computer science courses of at least three credits each. A student may not complete both a major and a minor in computer science. In meeting the requirements of this discipline-based minor, a student may not use more than nine credits that are also used to meet the requirements of another major or minor. Please note that CSCI-209 is the required prerequisite for most 300-level courses, one of which is required for the minor.
