The computer science minor is designed to complement the majors in various fields of study or to stand alone as a body of courses suitable for careers in software development or computer support.
Currently being redesigned and expanded, the minor will consist of six courses in the program approved by a minor program advisor in computer science. The minor can be fashioned to support majors in art, social sciences, economics, business, and all of the sciences in addition to mathematics.
Courses currently being taught are foundation courses such as object-oriented programming, operating systems, software engineering and courses in multimedia such as introduction to multimedia, game programming, and programming for the Web. These courses will enable students to fashion a collaborative minor that provides a pool of experience and many employment opportunities.
