Changes to required courses
for CSCI major and minor
Effective Date: Fall 2011
1. Delete: On page 105, under Concentration in Computer Systems, items I and II:
I.
Required
courses in the major—41 hours, including: CSCI 107, 201, 202, 255, 320, 331,
333, 343, 346, 431, 462; and 9 additional hours in CSCI at the 300 level or
above.
II.
Required
courses outside the major—23 hours: MATH 191, 192, 251; PHYS 221, and either 222
or 231; STAT 225.
Add: On page 105, in place of deleted
entry:
I.
Required
courses in the major—41 hours, including: CSCI 107, either
181 or 182, 202, 255, 320, 331, 333, 343, 346, 431, 462; and 9
additional hours in CSCI at the 300 level or above.
II.
Required
courses outside the major—23 hours: MATH 191, 192, either 251 or 280; PHYS 221,
and either 222 or 231; STAT 185 or 225.
Impact:
None
Rationale:
CSCI 201 is being
replaced by either 181 or 182. Adding MATH 280 as an alternative to
MATH 251 allows our majors to take a similar, but more advanced course, in
Mathematics. Since MATH 280 is a
required course in all concentrations of the MATH major, the change will help
students pursuing double majors in CSCI and MATH. Adding STAT 185 as an
alternative to STAT 225 follows a recommendation from the Chair of the
Mathematics department that Computer Science majors would be equally served by
either course. This change also gives
the two concentrations of our major the same requirement in Statistics.
2. Delete: On
page 105, under Concentration in
Information Systems, items I and II:
I.
Required
courses in the major—38 hours, including:
CSCI 107, 201, 202, 242, 255, 342, 343, 446, 448, 462; and 9 additional
hours in CSCI at the 300 level or above.
II.
Required
courses outside the major—20 hours: ACCT 215; ECON 306; MATH 191, 251; MGMT
220; STAT 185 or 225
