Computer Science Minor
The minor in Computer Science provides students with a general proficiency in the field of Computer Science and prepares them to enter a field that requires a level of computer expertise. Students gain a foundation in the field that will enable them to explore in more detail how to use computers to solve real-world problems. Students will complete 5 courses: 3 required and 2 electives to earn a minor in Computer Science.
The Department of Computer Science participates in two interdisciplinary minors:
The interdisciplinary Web Design minor provides students with the knowledge and skills required to design and develop Web sites. In the course of their studies students will learn how humans process information and how to graphically represent information in a useful and meaningful way. Upon completion of this minor, students will be prepared to design and develop Web sites as communication tools for people to use and experience.
Students who complete the Computational Physical Science minor will be prepared to use computer modeling and numerical methods to provide understanding of physical and chemical processes and to make predictions regarding the outcomes of such processes. Such capabilities have a broad range of applicability in areas that are as diverse as, for example, economics, criminal justice and sociology.
