UW-Parkside's Computer Science minor is meant for students are majoring in a different field, but still want to gain more than a cursory understanding of computers and how they work. The CS minor nicely complements majors in MIS, Graphic Design, Bioinformatics and Mathematics, although students studying in any discipline are welcome. As a Computer Science minor you will take courses that provide a background in the software, hardware and mathematical foundations necessary to understand and participate in advanced work. Practical experience and programming form a substantial portion of each course.
A minor in Computer Science consists of 23-26 credit hours of CS and Math courses. There is a core of required courses, but students also get to choose at least two electives from a wide variety of courses offered by the department. The undergraduate CS courses at UW-Parkside are based on international standards developed by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). These standards are highly respected by both universities and employers. This means that when you graduate with a CS minor from UW-Parkside employers will know that you received a quality education.
Detailed course descriptions are available in the CS section of the UW-Parkside University catalog.
The schedule of courses for the current semester and approaching semesters is available from the Registrar's web site.
