††Students must earn a grade of "C" or better in all Computer Science courses and in Math 165 and 241.
1Choose one from the following: Visual Arts, Music, Dance, or Theatre
2Students are required to take additional mathematics if they wish to pursue some Computer Science electives.
3Choose a science sequence, including labs, from (Physics 191/193 & 192/194); or (Physics 221/223 & 222/224) or (Biology 151/152 & 153/154) or (Chemistry 121/123 & 122/124) and two science electives from the same set of courses, one of which must include the corresponding lab. If a science elective is in biology, the science sequence must be in either physics or chemistry. If the science sequence is biology, then the science electives must be in either physics or chemistry. At least one biology course must include a lab. Note that some of these science courses require additional math prerequisites.
4Must be selected from CMPS 389, 394, 409, 455, 494
5Must be selected from CMPS 391, 401, 434, 441, 443, 470, 479, 493
6We recommend that this course be chosen as part of a cohesive group of courses that will focus on a particular application domain. Students may consult a computer science faculty member for advice on application domains, but this is effectively a free elective.
