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 student's career opportunities and success.

Computer Science has competitive entrance requirements. Please contact a department advisor for more information.
