Computer Science Breadth Requirement  |  9-10 credits
Students must complete a package of 9 or more credits outside of computer science in a coherent collection of courses that are relevant to computer science and that meet the approval of the computer science faculty. Several such packages have been pre-approved, in areas such as mathematics, the sciences, art, business and economics. Pre-approved packages include:
MATH 222 and 301
MATH 222 and PHYS 202

CHEM 102/104 and either CHEM 206 or 215

Select any 3 courses from: ACCT 201, BUS 272, FIN 330, MGT 349, or MKT 350

ECON 320 or 321, and two additional 300-level ECON courses

GEOG 350, 460 and 465

CRMJ 316, 380 and BUS 272

ART 105, 377 and 477
Optionally, a student may submit an individually designed computer science breadth package of 9 or more credits for approval by the computer science faculty. See the department chair for details.
