The Department of Computer Science offers four standard majors — computer science, computer science-mathematics, computational physics, and information systems. For students wishing to add a computing option to an existing major, two complementary majors are offered — business-information systems and computer science. Students majoring in computer science are urged to complete additional coursework in mathematics, accounting, business administration, physics, or related areas.
