2017-2018 Undergraduate Catalog

Computer Science, (Accelerated B.S./M.S.)


Return to College of Arts and Sciences Return to: College of Arts and Sciences

The Department of Computer Science offers courses leading to a B.S. degree with a major in computer science, or a second major in computer science, or a minor in computer science. Our B.S. degree program is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (CAC/ABET).

Here are the requirements for Majors, Second Majors, and Minors respectively.

University General Education Program (41 hours)


See Graduation from the University  for the University General Education Program requirements. Note the following requirements specified for the Computer Science major: Mathematics - MATH 1910 ; Natural Science - PHYS 2110 /PHYS 2111 , PHYS 2120 /PHYS 2121  or CHEM 1110 /CHEM 1111 , CHEM 1120 /CHEM 1121 , or BIOL 1110 /BIOL 1111 , BIOL 1120 /BIOL 1121 ; ECON 2020  is strongly recommended for the Social Science requirement.

Second Major in Computer Science (34 hours)


Completion of 34 semester hours in computer science courses including

Note:


COMP 4001 , COMP 4005  and COMP 4014   may not be used to fulfill any of these requirements. Coursework must be chosen in consultation with approval of an advisor in the Department of Computer Science.

Electives


Electives may be chosen to bring the total number of semester hours to 120. At least three of these elective hours must be from upper division courses. Students should talk to their advisors to determine most suitable courses for them.

Computer Science Honors Designation


A student will earn the designation “with Honors in Computer Science” upon graduation having complied with the following requirements:

  1. Be admitted into the Computer Science Honors Program by the Department upon formal request for consideration by the student;
  2. Have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0 and a GPA of at least 3.60 in Computer Science (COMP) courses satisfying degree requirements;
  3. Complete fifteen (15) credit hours in courses designated “Honors” in the the Computer Science program and satisfying degree requirements;
  4. Take honors sections of both COMP 1900  and COMP 2150  (core sequence);
  5. Take at least three (3) credit hours from the following courses taken as honors sections: COMP 4901  (independent study), COMP 4996  (senior thesis), and COMP 4882  (capstone software project).

Accelerated B.S./M.S. Program in Computer Science


This program allows outstanding majors in Computer Science to begin the coursework for the Master of Science in Computer Science while enrolled as undergraduates.. Students are encouraged to consult their advisor and begin planning to enter the Accelerated B.S./M.S. program early in their undergraduate study. The 5-ear program is designed to save both cost and time as it removes some typical requirements (e.g. taking the GRE exam) in a standard application for our M.S. Program.

Candidates for the accelerated program must meet the following requirements:

  • Complete COMP 1900 , COMP 2150 , COMP 2700 , and at least two upper-division COMP courses by the end of the semester of application.
  • Have a minimum 3.0 overall GPA, and a 3.6 GPA for COMP courses.

To apply for the accelerated program and be allowed to take graduate classes, students should submit two reference letters and a copy of their transcript to the Computer Science department. Applicants will be asked to complete an interview with the graduate program coordinator in computer science.

The accelerated program allows up to 9 hours of graduate course work to be applied to both the undergraduate and graduate programs. To continue in the graduate program once the B.S. degree is completed, students must apply for full admission into the Graduate School and into the Computer Science department’s M.S. program. The GRE requirement for graduate admission is waivedfor students in the accelerated program.

Total Hours: 120


Total Hours Required for Graduation: 120


*Must satisfy University General Education Program Requirement

**Natural Science - One sequence and one additional course/lab from: PHYS 2110 /PHYS 2111 , PHYS 2120 /PHYS 2121 ; OR CHEM 1110 /CHEM 1111 , CHEM 1120 /CHEM 1121 ; OR BIOL 1110 /BIOL 1111 , BIOL 1120 /BIOL 1121 .
