Minor Degree in Computer Science

 

A Minor in Computer Science can be earned in conjunction with any major in the College of Arts and Sciences as well as in conjunction with some majors in other colleges. Information on requirements for the minor, how to add the minor to your degree and how to complete the minor at graduation is available below.

Requirements

There are course requirements, residency requirements, and requirements concerning grades, all explained below.

Course Requirements

The following courses are required. Each course may be taken at most once for credit towards the Minor. Note that all CSCI course prerequisites are enforced.

Residency Requirements

At least three computer science courses need to be taken on the Boulder campus. At least two of these three have to be at the upper-division level.

If you are considering a change to a Computer Science major, note that the final 45 hours of the BS degree must be taken after admission to the College of Engineering and Applied Science on the Boulder campus, and certain Computer Science courses must be taken on the Boulder campus.

Grade Requirements

A cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.25 or better is required in the courses that are used to satisfy the requirements for this minor. Each individual course that is counted towards these degree requirements must be passed with a D- or better. Note, however, that a C- or better is required in all prerequisite courses to go on to a subsequent course.

Adding a Computer Science Minor

Adding a Computer Science Minor is a relatively simple process. See the College of Engineering and Applied Science Change of Major Form for instructions. Completed forms should be delivered to the College of Engineering and Applied Science Dean's Office (ECAD 100) on the first floor of the Engineering Center.

Completing a Computer Science Minor

The College of Engineering and Applied Science requires the submission of a completed Completion of Minor Form, available in the Dean's Office, early in the semester in which you intend to graduate. See the Dean's Office for details.
