Requirements for the Major


Fulfill baccalaureate degree requirements.


Complete the core curriculum with a B or better in Computer Science II. Computer science majors meet the writing and research component by taking:


Choose the CPS , CIS , CMM , or CSIA  option and complete the additional requirements for that option.


For the CPS, CIS, or CSIA option, complete 16 additional credits from computer science courses above the 250 level, as approved by the faculty advisor. For the CMM option, complete 20 additional credits above the 250 level with a CS prefix, as approved by the faculty advisor.


Maintain a GPA of at least 2.5 in upper division computer science courses.


The capstone experience is a three-term sequence (Systems Analysis, Capstone I, and Capstone II) that should be taken in the senior year. Students prepare for, design, and implement a project that solves a computer science or information systems problem. The project should be of sufficient size to be useful and to give the student a real-world experience, but it should also be small enough to be completed in two terms.
