Notes:
  • Appropriate CSCI or MATH 300-level topics courses can also satisfy elective credits with the approval of the program chair.
  • Four elective credits from either track can be replaced by one of the following courses: BIOL 221, CHEM 234, ECON 332, ENVR 275, or PHYS 200
  • At least eight of the twelve elective credits must be at the 300-level.
  • Electives must be chosen as a coherent program of study that supports the student’s area of interest. This program must be chosen in consultation with faculty advisor and subject to the approval of the program chair.
  • Students must be previously admitted to the major, and they must meet all CSB/SJU requirements for graduation. CSB/SJU requires a 2.00 GPA in CSCI courses to graduate with a Numerical Computation degree.
