Minor in Computer Science
A minor in computer science equips mathematically minded students specializing in computer programming. The minor comprises a fundamental understanding of the use, knowledge, function, installation, programming, and maintenance of computers, and provides graduates with a variety of technological skills needed in today’s workplace.
Please consult with the department for each semester's offerings since courses are not necessarily offered every semester.
Computer Science students are required to have a laptop for classroom work.

Meets 1 unit of the General Education Oral Communication requirement (taking CS 120, CS 290, and CS 480—or CS 120, ENGR 240, and ENGR 480—satisfies the General Education Oral Communication requirement).
There are a number of benefits to adding a minor in computer science to related fields such as mathematics. Students should consult their department advisor or an advisor in computer science to determine how adding a computer science minor might further their educational or professional goals.
Program Learning OutcomesStudents who successfully complete this program shall be able to:
- Analyze a complex computing problem and to apply principles of computing and other relevant disciplines to identify solutions.
- Design, implement, and evaluate a computing-based solution to meet a given set of computing requirements in the context of the program’s discipline.
- Apply computer science theory and software development fundamentals to produce computing-based solutions.
