Computer science and programming skills are in high demand in every field. Most jobs now require them.
A minor in Computer Science will give students a foundation in software development, programming, and computer and information theory. Students will begin with a gradual introduction to programming and data structures. Then students can take courses in an area of emphasis that complements their current degree.
This customized minor can significantly boost a student's career opportunities and success.
Computer Science has competitive entrance requirements. Please contact a department advisor for more information.
