The Computer Science minor offers students the opportunity to study computation including the design and analysis of algorithms (step-by-step sequences of instructions for carrying out some task), the formalization of algorithms as programs, and the development of computing devices for executing those programs. A minor in computer science will provide a strong foundation in computing that can complement other major fields and also prepare graduates for assessing the technology they use in everyday life.
