B.S. Computer Science Curriculum

In addition to meeting the standards and requirements of the College of Arts and Sciences, degree candidates must complete the requirements listed below. All programs are worked out in consultation with a department adviser who may modify the program in view of the students' backgrounds and objectives. All programs must be approved by the department. No more than three internship credits (CSAS 3091-3094) may be used toward the major program in Computer Science.

Please note: Classes and program requirements are subject to change. Students who enroll at Seton Hall will follow the catalogue guidelines for the year they matriculate. Catalogues for each year are generally released in the late summer.
