  • Requirements for this program are current for Fall 2015
  • Required credits in this minor: 26
Objectives--The computer science curriculum is designed to provide students with a strong foundation in the diverse and rapidly changing field of computing. The science of computing is emphasized with a focus on fundamental principles and the formal underpinnings of the field. Students are encouraged to use and supplement their formal education through a variety of research opportunities, participation in discipline colloquia and student/professional organizations, and pursuit of internship experiences or international studies opportunities.
Program Delivery
This program is available:
  • via classroom (the majority of instruction is face-to-face)
Minor Requirements
No more than two courses with a grade of D or D+, offset by an equivalent number of credits of A or B grades, may be used to meet the requirements for a computer science minor. Non-elective courses taken S-N may not be counted towards the minor. A minimum GPA of 2.00 is required in the minor in order to graduate. The GPA includes all, and only, University of Minnesota coursework. Grades of "F" are included in GPA calculation until they are replaced.
