Computer Science (CSCI) Minor

Non-computer science students can minor in Computer Science. The requirement for the CSCI minor is 6 course units (cu) which includes:

  • CIS 110 – Introduction to Computer Programming (or AP CIS 110 on your transcript)
  • CIS 120 – Programming Languages and Techniques I
  • CIS 121 – Programming Languages and Techniques II
  • CIS 160 – Mathematical Foundations of Computer Science
  • Any CIS Engineering Elective**
  • Any CIS Engineering Elective 200 level and above**

Please Note:  CIS 110 may be included ONLY if it was taken before taking CIS 120.

**A CIS Elective is any CIS or NETS engineering course. The Engineering Undergraduate Handbook defines all CIS and NETS classes numbered 1XX-5XX to be engineering courses, with the following exceptions: CIS 100, 101, 105, 106, 107, 125, 160, 181, 261, 423/523. These courses do not count as CIS engineering classes. Additionally, the following course may be used to satisfy a CIS Elective requirement: ESE 350.
