Computer Science Minor

The Computer Science minor1 provides sufficient flexibility to complement any major field of study. All required courses must be passed with a “C-” or better with a minimum cumulative G.P.A. of 2.00 in the courses. We suggest that students consult with a computer science advisor to plan a minor program.
