In successfully completing a major in Computer Science, a student will demonstrate:
The computer science major is available as a bachelor of arts or bachelor of science degree, as defined in the section on degree requirements for all majors in this course catalog.
For a major: At least 40 credits in Computer Science including 160, 161, 260, 262, 305, 330, 370, 375, 377, 405, 430, 431, and 490; MATH 170, 230 and one course from the following MATH 175, 220, or 250. Students are encouraged to take these mathematics courses as early as possible because they provide a theoretical background for many COMP courses. While COMP 121 and 131 may not be counted toward the major, these courses are highly recommended. Students are strongly encouraged to take 480 Independent Study and 487 Internship.
For a minor: At least 20 credits in Computer Science including 121, 131, 160, and 161, and at least 6 credits from courses numbered 200 or higher.
