The Department of Computer and Information Sciences offers four programs leading towards the Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science. Transfer students who major in CS must complete a minimum of six Cs and/or Is courses at the College for the Bachelor of Science degree. Minor programs in management information systems and computer science are available to matriculating students. Certificate programs are open to all students matriculating for a degree as well as to non-matriculating students. Four certificate programs are available: the Computer Programming Certificate, the Business Systems Certificate, the Management Information Systems Certificate, and the Web Page Development Certificate. In addition the Department offers for students majoring in Criminal Justice, a concentration in Computer Science and Crime Forensics. The Department faculty also participates in the M.B.A. in Management Information Systems. If a student has extensive professional experience with programming or system design, the student should consult one of the full-time faculty members in the Department about a suitable course of studies in the major.
