CS Major (BS)

The CS BS incorporates computing theory, in preparation for more advanced work, and physical science requirements.

GPA Requirement

All classes counting toward the degree must be taken for a letter grade. Students must meet the minimum GPA requirement of 2.0 to graduate with any major or minor from the department. Major/Minor GPA will be calculated using the better of the grades when a student repeats a course.

Course Requirements

(A CS major cannot be combined with a CS or AI minor.)
