The department offers a B.S. in Computer Science, supports the B.S. in Computer Engineering offered by the Electrical, Computer, and Biomedical Engineering Department, and supports a program in Digital Art with the Visual Arts department.
The department also participates in offering three minors: a traditional minor in Computer Science, a minor in Computational Methods, and a minor in Digital Media in collaboration with the Visual Arts department.
Each CS major or minor program includes one course from the following list: (CSC 103 , CSC 104 , CSC 105 , CSC 106 , CSC 107 ) Each course focuses on a distinct application area. The courses all cover the same basic computer science concepts and programming skills and only one may be counted toward a major or minor. These courses are open to non-majors and are prerequisite to certain intermediate courses that are also available to and suitable for non-majors. A grade of C- or better is required in order to take any course that requires an introductory course as a prerequisite. Once one has passed an introductory course with a C- or better, no other introductory course may be taken for credit. All of these courses satisfy SET or QMR of the Common Curriculum.
