In addition to the general studies requirements, a minimum of 48 computer science units and 12 mathematics units (for a total of 60 units) are required for the Bachelor of Science in Computer Science. To be successful in this major, knowledge of operating systems, word processing, spreadsheets, and database applications is necessary. CS 205 Microcomputer Software Tools is considered a must for students who do not have a strong background in these skills.
Although the university provides extensive computer lab facilities for student use, each student is encouraged to purchase a personal computer. Students with their own IBM compatible PC have a definite advantage in utilizing and applying computer science instruction.
