# CS Curriculum Revisions 2019-2020

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.

## Contents

## Required for all CS Majors

- Retain from current requirements
- CS 151 Intro to Programming, CS 470 Programming Languages

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

- New requirements
- CS 260 Object-Oriented Programming

- Total - 8+12 = 20 credits of CS

## Information Science Concentration

- Retain from current requirements
- CS 170 Web Programming, CS 469 Unix/Linux Administration and Networking, CS 479 Web Programming II

- New requirements
- CS 101 Fundamentals of Computing, CSS 211 Intro to Computer Security, CSS 331 Files and Database Systems, CSS 210 Intro to Networking

- Total - 21 credits of CS

## Computing Science Concentration

- Retain from current requirements
- CS 201 Computer Science I, CS 202 Computer Science II, MATH 131 Calculus I, MATH 132 Calculus II

- Modifications of current requirements
- CS 458 - currently Algorithms, becomes Algorithms and Theory of Computation, more credit hours (4?)
- CS 456 Systems Programming - becomes 4 credit hours?

- New requirements
- Additional mathematics - choose 9 credits from - MATH 241 Principles of Statistics, MATH 313 Elementary Linear Algebra, MATH 341 Probability and Statistics, MATH 252 Programming in Mathematics

- Total - 16 credits of CS, 8+9 = 17 credits of math

## Data Science

New concentration

- Retain from current requirements

- 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)

- 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

- Total - 9 credits of CS, 8+6 = 14 credits of math

## 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
