Requirements for the A.B. Degree
Concentration Prerequisites (1 or 2 courses)
Two semesters of Calculus (e.g. MATH 90 and 100, or MATH 170).
Concentration Requirements (9 courses)
Students must complete the university's writing requirement.
One introductory course sequence is required:
- CSCI 150 and CSCI 160
- CSCI 170 and CSCI 180
- CSCI 190 and an advanced CS course (1000-level or higher)
Three intermediate courses must be taken, of which one must be math-oriented and one must be systems-oriented:
- CSCI 220 (math-oriented)
- CSCI 310 or 330 (systems-oriented)
- CSCI 320 (systems-oriented)
- CSCI 450 (math-oriented)
- CSCI 510 (math-oriented)
- CSCI 530 (math-oriented)
Four additional courses in computer science or related areas are required. Three must be advanced courses (i.e., at the 1000-level or higher), the fourth may be either an intermediate-level course not used to satisfy a core requirement or an advanced course. The advanced courses must include a pair of courses with a coherent theme. A list of pre-approved pairs may be found at the approved-pairs web page. You are not restricted to pairs on this list, but any pair not on the list must be approved by the director of undergraduate studies.
