Computer Science

A few decades ago, it would have seemed unbelievable that a day would soon come when computers would be installed in everything from new cars to children’s toys, phones would take pictures and send messages by text, and a social network called Facebook would connect one-twelfth the world’s population. Technology will only continue to grow – and with it will grow the need for people who understand and further technology.

The discipline of computer science studies the programs, languages, and systems that make computing possible. A minor can help you learn some of the basics in these subjects, which can be usefully applied to careers in many different fields.
