Many students who minor in computer science major in another area in the College of Science and Engineering.
Computing is used extensively in the sciences now more than ever. Math and physics majors benefit from learning to write their own computer software, which helps solve equations and formulas.
A computer science minor also can be beneficial to students majoring in management information systems because those areas are closely related.
The minor in computer science is an eighteen hour course of study that must include Computer Science 1336, 1337, 2336, plus one additional Computer Science course: 1314, 1315, or 1351; and at least six advanced hours.
