Computer Science Minor
The Department of Computer Science offers instruction and performs research in the essential areas of computer science including software, Web and Internet computing, networking, hardware systems, operating systems, compilers, parallel and distributed computing, theory of computing, and computer graphics.
The computer science minor program is currently suspended to redirect maximal resources to the computer science major programs to admit as many students as possible.
In addition to the program requirements listed below, students must:
- take at least nine hours of their minor "core" requirements at UNC–Chapel Hill
- earn a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.000 in the minor core requirements. Some programs may require higher standards for minor or specific courses.
For more information, please consult the degree requirements section of the catalog.
A student may minor in computer science by completing five courses within these restrictions:
|COMP 210||Data Structures and Analysis||3|
|COMP 211||Systems Fundamentals||3|
|COMP 301||Foundations of Programming||3|
|Two courses from the following options:||6|
Alternatives to these requirements must be approved by the director of undergraduate studies.
