Program Requirements

Computer science majors, especially those planning graduate work, are advised to acquire a strong background in mathematics, possibly a minor.
Personnel in the College of Physical and Mathematical Sciences Advisement Center will advise regarding core courses and suggested general education. Questions regarding curriculum and career decisions should be directed to the undergraduate advisor in the Computer Science Department.
Note: All hours of credit applied toward a major in computer science must be of C- or better and must be taken within eight years of declaring the computer science major. Any exceptions must be approved by the department. Students may choose to graduate under later requirements by updating their date of entry into the major at the college advisement center.
Note: No double counting is allowed within the major.
Requirement 4 Complete 24.0 hours from the following Options
Complete 8 courses from the following three options:
Note: If C S 401R is chosen, it must be taken for three hours.
Option 4.2 Complete up to 3.0 hours from the following Courses
B. One of the eight courses could be from the following.
Note 1: If either C S 498R or 501R is chosen, it must be taken for three hours.
Program Outcomes

Computational Practice:

Students can implement significant programming projects. Students will perform analysis, specification, design, implementation, and testing resulting in quality computer software solutions. Students will use data structures, algorithms, programming languages, and software engineering techniques in their programming.
