Students pursuing the bachelor of science (B.S.) degree program in computer science must complete the requirements listed below.
1. General Curricular Requirements
All students must satisfy the general curricular requirements listed in the Degree Requirements chapter of this catalog. Some of the general curricular requirements are automatically satisfied by fulfilling the natural science and mathematics requirements of the B.S. program. The following guidelines should be used:
A. 6 credits of the B.S. natural science requirements may be used to satisfy the general curricular requirement of 6 credits from the offerings of the natural science disciplines.
B. 6 credits of the B.S. mathematics requirements may be used to satisfy the general curricular requirement of 3 credits in mathematics and 3 credits in mathematics, computer science, or statistics.
2. Natural Science Requirements
50:750:131-132 Elements of Physics I,II (3,3) and
50:750:133-134 Elements of Physics Laboratory I,II (1,1)
A minimum of 4 additional credits of natural science electives in the biological sciences, chemistry, or physics. Courses designed for nonscience majors and 50:750:203-204 General Physics may not be used to satisfy this requirement.
3. Mathematics Requirements
50:640:121,122 Unified Calculus I,II (4,4)
50:640:250 Linear Algebra (3)
50:960:336 Applied Statistics (3) or 50:960:283,284 Introduction to Statistics I,II (3,3)
A minimum of 3 additional credits in mathematics or statistics at the 200 level or higher (excluding 50:640:237 Discrete Mathematics and 50:640:250 Linear Algebra).
4. Computer Science Core
