Description of Majors

Solo or Duo

Not only do our majors and minors provide students with a complete package of technical knowledge, but they also work well with any other areas of study.

Computer Science
Major/Complementary Major*/Minor

The computer science major is great for students interested in designing and developing software with the broadest emphasis on core computer science theory and programming. The computer science minor is well-suited for math and science majors, as well as those students pursuing a career in medicine and life sciences.

Computer Science – Math
Major

The computer science – math (CS-Math) major is well suited for students intrigued by applying computer science to math-intensive applications. CS-Math majors excel in careers from scientific computing to game programming. CS-Math students are also recognized as math majors.

[Business]-Information Systems
Major/Complementary Major*/Minor

The information systems major provides the perfect combination of business an technology through selected coursework. The information systems minor is an excellent choice for students interested in accounting, graphic design, nursing, or law.

*A complementary major is designed to be taken in conjunction with another major.
