Computer Science - Applied CS Bioinformatics (Math 140+) Major Map  

Computer Science - Applied CS Computer Information Systems (Math 115) Major Map  

Computer Science - Applied CS Computer Information Systems (Math 140+) Major Map  

Computer Science - Applied CS Human Computer Interaction (Math 115) Major Map  

Computer Science - Applied CS Human Computer Interaction (Math 140+) Major Map  

Computer science majors choose between two options: Computer Science (CS) and Applied Computer Science (ACS). Both options require a common core set of courses designed to give students a fundamental understanding of both theoretical and applied computer science, and an introduction to current topics and practices in the industry. Upper-level courses within each option build on these concepts to provide depth in particular areas. As such, all computer science majors are prepared for computer science careers and, if they desire, further graduate study in computer-related fields.
