College of Arts & Sciences
Overview

More and more careers in today's society require a background in computing. The minor program in computer science prepares students to be successful in the job market by enhancing the education of other fields, such as business, finance, engineering, sciences, and design. It teaches designing and building software, including aspects of interface design, security issues, web development, and mobile computing.  It also emphasizes how to use computers and computation to solve problems in applications involving databases, networks, computer security, computer-aided design, natural sciences, and many more.
