Students pursuing the bachelor of arts (B.A.) 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.A. program. The
following guidelines should be used:
credits of the B.A. natural science requirements may be used to satisfy
the general curricular requirement of 6 credits from the offerings of
the natural science disciplines.
credits of the B.A. 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
Minimum of 9 credits of natural science electives in the biological
sciences, chemistry, or physics (including astronomy and geology).
3. Mathematics Requirements
50:640:129 Linear Mathematics for Business and Economics (3)
50:640:130 Calculus for Business, Economics, and Life Sciences (3), or 50:640:121 Unified Calculus I (4)
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).
4. Computer Science Core
Identical to the bachelor of science (B.S.) in computer science core requirements, except
that the course 50:198:476 Introduction to the Theory of Computation is
5. Computer Science Electives
Identical to the B.S. in computer science electives requirements.
