## Revision as of 12:24, 8 February 2019

Below are proposed revisions to the CS BS degree.

Note that the current major includes 10 courses required of all majors, 5 additional courses required for information science, 3 CS courses required of computing science, and 2 math courses required for computing science.

Open question - prerequisite structure. Things that required 201 now require 260 and/or 303/451?

## Contents

## Required for all CS Majors

- CS 151 (3) Intro to Programming, CS 470 (4) Programming Languages

- Modifications of current requirements
- CS 303 (4) - currently Discrete Structures, change to Intro to Theory of Computation ("theory lite")
- CS 451 (4) - currently Architecture, change to Intro to Systems ("systems lite"), Change # to be 351?
- CS 499 (4) - currently Senior Seminar, change to Senior Design, have students take it their last two semesters

- New requirements
- CS 260 (4) Object-Oriented Programming

- Total - 3+20 = 23 credits of CS

## Information Science Concentration

- New requirements
- MATH 313 Elementary Linear Algebra, MATH 341 Probability and Statistics
- CS 401 Programming for Data Science I (need to create 400 level version)

- What else?
- Could also use, but would need to create the 400 level version and confirm with Math group and department chairperson
- MATH 403/503 Linear Algebra and Modeling for Data Science and Analytics, MATH 440/540 Statistics for Data Science and Analytics

- Something else new?

- Could also use, but would need to create the 400 level version and confirm with Math group and department chairperson

## No Longer Required

Courses that are no longer required in any concentration. Can be banked if we don't plan to offer.

- CS 452 Software Engineering, CS 471 Operating Systems, CS 420 Theory of Computation, CS 421 Formal Methods, CS 473 Computer Networks
- Total - 5 courses, 15 credits
