Natural Sciences
one additional GNS/GLS or GPS course
3-4
Social and Behavioral Sciences (GSB)
one additional course
3
Foreign Language (GFL)
Intermediate-level proficiency in one language, demonstrated by placement test, or completion of coursework through course number 204
0-12

Writing Intensive Courses (WI)
A total of four WI courses


IV Major Requirements
Students with no programming experience:
1. CSC 130, 230 or 231, 261, 312, 330, 339, 340, 553, 561, 562
2. CSC Electives: 12 hours, selected from any CSC course at the 500-level (except 553, 561, 562)

Students with previous programming experience (equivalent to a one-semester course in a high-level programming language):
1. CSC 231, 261, 312, 330, 339, 340, 553, 561, 562
2. CSC Electives: 14 hours, selected from any CSC course at the 500-level (except 553, 561, 562)


V Supporting Discipline Requirements
1. MAT 191*, 253, 292, 293, 353; STA 271

*MAT 191 satisfies GMT


VI Science Requirements
1. PHY 291*, 292; or CHE 111*, 112*, 114, 115.
*PHY 291 or CHE 111, 112 satisfy GNS

2. At least 4 additional hours of science courses selected from any course carrying credit toward a biology, chemistry, or physics major.

Students must maintain a grade point average of at least 2.0 in the core courses, required electives, and required supporting discipline courses.

Because computer science courses change rapidly, it is recommended that the sequence 130, 230, 330 be completed within four (4) consecutive semesters.
