The minor in computer programming is for students who are interested in learning more about not just the technology within their personal computer and the ins and outs of programming, but also the fundamental application of computers in our daily lives.
The minor provides students with the opportunity to acquire basic skills in computer programming methodology and to learn about the advantages that specific programming languages have to offer in solving various types of problems.
Computer Science Minor
The minor in computer science is open to all students who are interested in a coherent introduction to the science of computing. The minor is designed to provide a broad spectrum of computer science from a more technical perspective.
In today’s world, mathematics is not only used in the sciences and engineering but also in commerce, finance, and social studies. The mathematics minor is intended to provide students with basic and intermediate mathematical skills that can be used in their own field of study, and with an appreciation of the elegance of mathematical expression.
Many of the courses required for minors may also fulfill or partially fulfill a general education category. Some courses required for minors may also satisfy courses required for majors. Students pursuing a minor should notify and consult with the appropriate department chair and complete the appropriate paperwork with the Registrar's Office so that it can be noted on the transcript.
