    • COSC 110 – Problem Solving and Structured Programming, 3cr
    • COSC 210 – Object Oriented and GUI Programming, 3cr

    And COSC electives (1, 2, 3), 12cr:

    Select 12 additional credits in computer science, including at least six credits from 300-level or higher courses. COSC 143 cannot be counted as part of a computer science minor.

    1. COSC 101 is an appropriate entry course for this minor. However, COSC 101 cannot be counted as part of a computer science minor for management information systems majors.

    2. No more than six credits of overlap can be used for computer science and cybersecurity minors.

    3. See computer science minor advisor for suggestions.
