Computer Science (CSCI)
Admission to the major in the Department of Computer Science is limited. See “Limited Admissions and Limited Retention Requirements” in this catalog.
The Department of Computer Science offers a program leading to the B.S. degree with a major in computer science. A student must choose an emphasis in software development, enterprise software, or computational software.
Students who intend to major or minor in computer science are requested to contact the departmental office during the early weeks of their first semester on campus to obtain additional information on admission to the computer science major or minor.
The department offers a course (CSCI 205) which partially fulfills the university’s sciences requirement in the general education program and courses which count toward the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences’ requirements for the B.S. degree.
Computer science majors are not permitted to count courses in mathematical sciences (MATH/STAT) toward fulfilling general education area requirements. Also, students may not audit computer science courses without obtaining prior permission from the Department of Computer Science.
