Program Description

The Computer Science Minor is designed to provide basic proficiency in computer science. The requirements focus on programming methodology and skills, software development, relevant mathematical skills, structure techniques, and basic computer science concepts such as computer organizations and architecture, design and analysis of algorithms, data communications, operating systems, and security.

Students may need to take MATH 1113 , MATH 1190 , and (MATH 2345  or CSE 2300 ) in order to satisfy prerequisites for CS courses. Students must earn a grade of “B” or higher in CSE 1321 CSE 1321L  , CSE 1322 , and CSE 1322L , and a grade of “C” or higher in all remaining courses for the minor. Completing these requirements provides a strong foundation in computer science.

Students who take recommended courses as minor electives will be able to enter into Master of Science in Computer Science (MSCS) at KSU without taking any additional fundamental courses.


This program is a part of the College of Computing and Software Engineering .
