Computer Science Minor


Return to School of Computing and Information Return to: School of Computing and Information

A 16 credit minor in computer science is available. The minor is essentially 5 of the 6 courses that are considered the “core” of the CS major. This is a rigorous minor. This minor is not intended for casual students interested in computer literacy.

The requirements for the CS minor are:

  • CMPINF 0401  - INTERMEDIATE PROGRAMMING*
  • CS 0445  - DATA STRUCTURES
  • CS 0447  - COMPUTER ORGANIZATION AND ASSEMBLY LANGUAGE
  • CS 1501  - ALGORITHM IMPLEMENTATION
  • and one of the two courses: CS 0441  - DISCRETE STRUCTURES FOR CS, CS 0449  - INTRODUCTION TO SYSTEMS SOFTWARE**.

*CMPINF 0401  requires programming experience as a prerequisite. A student without any programming background would be advised to take the 3 credit course CS 0007  as preparation for CMPINF 0401.

**The typical minor consists of CMPINF 0401 , CS 0441 , CS 0445 , CS 0447  and CS 1501 , is a prerequisite for CS 1501 . However, students with very strong math backgrounds (ex: Math majors) may be able to waive the CS 0441  prerequisite for CS 1501  and thus take CS 0449  rather than CS 0441 .
