A foundation in computer science is invaluable to students in any field, from the natural and social sciences to humanities and business, allowing them to work with substantial computing and cyber systems. The Computer Science minor has been designed so that students from any discipline can complement their major, ensuring they will be able to competitively handle the computing and cyber aspects of their professions. The Computer Science minor requires three core courses in computer science and three electives, which can be aligned with the student's professional interests.
