Computer Science

Computers are now used in every aspect of our lives and, as such, many students majoring in other disciplines have the desire to achieve a basic foundation in the computing and information sciences. These minors appeal to students who wish to strengthen their computing background and enhance their career choices and opportunities. The Computer Science minor is designed primarily as a service to majors other than Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or Information Technology majors.
