Computer and Information Systems

The Computer and Information Systems Minor provides students with the skills necessary to become competent "end users" of computers and applications. Courses in this minor cover business applications, system design and analysis, telecommunications and more. Students in the widest range of majors and disciplines can benefit from the ability to apply the skills gained in this program in most professional environments as well as in personal computer use.

Required courses in the Computer and Information Systems Minor are listed below. Courses with asterisks (*) do not have a prerequisite or corequisite requirement.

  • CS 107 – Computers and Information Systems * (or course CS 115 Microcomputers & Programming I *) (or course CS 120 Computers & Info. Technology)
  • CS 210 – Fundamentals of Telecommunications and Networks
  • CS 214 – Business Applications on the Microcomputer I *
  • CS 215 – Business Applications on the Microcomputer II
  • CS 232 – Intro. to Data Base Design and Distributed Searching
  • CS 240 – Systems Design and Analysis​

**Choose one course from the following (3 credits):

  • ECON 220 - Understanding Economic & Business Data
  • BUSI 2O3 - Business Statistics
  • ACCT 251 - Principles of Accounting I
  • ACCT 252 - Principles of Accounting II
  • ACCT 401 - Accounting Information Systems
  • MGMT 4l3 - Management Information Systems
  • SECU 150 - Introduction to Security

Computer Science

The Computer Science Minor provides an excellent complement of courses for students majoring in the sciences, mathematics, and disciplines that require enhanced computational resources and skills. Courses in Java programming, discrete mathematics, operating systems, and data structures provide a foundation in computer science and computational concepts. Additional courses such as computational methods, telecommunications and networks, and database design provide further study of related subjects. 

Required courses in the Computer Science Minor are listed below. Courses with asterisks (*)  do not have a prerequisite or corequisite requirement:

  • CS 101 – Fundamentals of Computer Science I
  • CS 102 – Fundamentals of Computer Science II
  • CS 202 – Discrete Structures I
  • CS 206 – Concepts of Operating Systems
  • CS 209 – Data Structures

Choose two courses from the following:

  • CS 205 – Computational Methods
  • CS 210 – Fundamentals of Telecommunications and Networks
  • CS 232 – Intro. to Data Base Design and Distributed Searching
  • MATH 193 – Calculus & Analytical Geometry  II
  • MATH 260 – Linear Algebra
  • INTD 180 – Computer Tools for Science and Mathematics *

One 300 or 400 level Computer Science course for which the student has completed the appropriate prerequisite.
