The Bachelor of Science in Computer Science is a composite major. It therefore does not require a minor.

We strongly suggest that students seeking a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science or the Composite Major in Computer Information Systems and Business plan to take their major courses in the following sequence:

     
Freshman - Fall Semester CSIS 110
  - Spring Semester CSIS 111, CSIS 125
Sophomore - Fall Semester CSIS 211, CSIS 225, CSIS 275
  - Spring Semester CSIS 201, CSIS 215, CSIS 245
Junior - Fall Semester CSIS 301, CSIS 360
  - Spring Semester CSIS 450, CSIS upper division elective
Senior - Fall Semester CSIS 315, CSIS 445
  - Spring Semester CSIS 405, CSIS 490

All students pursuing majors or minors in this department should plan on enrolling in MATH 121 in the fall semester of their Freshman year.

Composite Major in Business and Computer Information Systems, B.S.

Students who wish to pursue this program must make formal application both to the Department of Business Administration and the Department of Computer Science.
