Computer Science B.S.C.S. Eight-Semester Degree Program

The following sections contain the list of courses required for the Bachelor of Science in Computer Science (B.S.C.S.) degree with a suggested sequence below.

Not all courses are offered every semester, so students who deviate from the suggested sequence must pay careful attention to course scheduling and course prerequisites. Students wishing to follow the eight-semester degree plan should see the Eight-Semester Degree Policy in the Academic Regulations chapter for university requirements of the program.

Scholarship students may need to take 1-hour General Elective in Second Year, Spring Semester for 15 semester hours.
