Computer Science Minor- CSCI

The minor in Computer Science is open to all undergraduates, and it consists of five required courses and one student selected course. It should be noted in the details below that college-level calculus is a prerequisite to some of the required credits in Computer Science. Consult the Computer Science Coordinator of the Mathematics, Computer Science, & Statistics Department, 274 Fitzelle, 607.436.3708, for more detailed information on options and suggested sequences. Students planning to complete requirements for a curriculum minor must make all arrangements with the Department Chairperson and Program Coordinator.

1. College rules pertaining to curriculum majors also apply to curriculum minors

  • Minor GPA of at least 2.0
  • All courses must be taken for a letter grade unless offered Pass/Fail only
