Applied Computing Minor

Fusing the theory and application of computer science, the applied computing minor develops technical knowledge and real-world skills in IT, programming languages, web development and more. Applied computing focuses on critical thinking and problem solving, which prepares students from all majors with skills that can contribute to the mission of virtually any organization.

For more information, contact Michael Jonas, minor supervisor.

The minor requires five COMP courses (20 credit hours). Students must earn grades of at least C- in each course and maintain an overall GPA of 2.0 in minor courses. Transfer students may transfer up to two courses, subject to the approval of the minor supervisor. Courses taken on a pass/fail basis may not be used for the minor. No more than 8 credits used by the student to satisfy major requirements may be used in the minor.
