Computer Science Bachelor of Science and Minor Curriculum
The Bachelor of Science consists of two options with distinct curricula: Information Systems, which includes a strong business component, and Science/Mathematics, which includes a science and mathematics component. The proposed curricula do not increase the number of required credits for either option, diminish the number of general electives, nor require any additional resources. The curricula do include the major recommended knowledge area updates required in a dynamically changing discipline.
