Computer Science Minor
Rationale. Computers are the future. By learning to use a computer, students are securing their tomorrows. Good computer skills will build self-confidence and increase students’ marketability and competence in their chosen fields. Computers also allow users to work quickly and efficiently with data and information in a way that no other devices do.
