Computer Science Minor - ARCHIVE

Penn State Erie, The Behrend College (CSCBD)

The computer science minor at Behrend is designed to allow students in any Behrend major to establish a strong conceptual framework in computer science, so they can apply computer science methods and techniques to their primary field of study. Students begin by taking two courses in computer programming (CMPSC 121 and CMPSC 122), a course in Object-Oriented Design (CMPBD 360), and a course in discrete math for computer science (CMPSC 360). These thirteen credits are followed with an additional six credits of 400-level work in computer science at Behrend (CMPSC). (Please note that MATH 140 is a prerequisite for CMPSC 122, so students whose majors do not require MATH 140 must be sure to schedule it in place of or in addition to the math courses required by their majors.)

Computing has become a critical aspect of most disciplines. This minor provides students with the opportunity to develop computing expertise which can then be applied to their field of study, thus enhancing job placement opportunities after graduation or better preparing the student to pursue graduate work in computing intensive sub-disciplines of their major. The emphasis is on building a conceptual framework which will allow the student to continue to learn new computing techniques beyond graduation in this rapidly evolving discipline.

A grade of C or better is required for all courses in the minor.
