Computer Science Minor

Sometimes you want to try something out before you commit to a four-year degree, and we get that, which is one of the many reasons we offer a computer science minor. You’ll get a good introduction to the area, which will also serve as a great résumé booster. Any student not majoring in computer science is eligible to earn this minor.
