This page is used to keep track of currently proposed curriculum changes for computer science. The page was last updated in the fall of 2021.
Proposed change is to require Math 241. Currently the BS requires either Math 241 or Math 341. Since Math 241 is a prereq for Math 341, it is simpler to just require Math 241.
Proposal to create new courses CS 210, CS 211, CS 331 that are cross-listed with the CSS versions. This would allow us to schedule our own sections of these classes without needing to wait on the School of Criminology to schedule them for us. Note that the rules for cross-listed courses (at https://www.indstate.edu/academic-affairs/curriculum/caps2013/policies-rules-guidelines) - both departments would need to approve the proposal and then any changes to the courses later on.
High Impact Practice
We have proposed to add CS 499 to the new High Impact Practice (HIP) category. The proposal in curriculog: https://indstate.curriculog.com/proposal:5688/form
Math asked if we would count Math 320 as a prereq in place of CS 303 for CS courses they are including in their proposed Data Science BS. We approved updating CS 457&L, CS 475&L, CS 557, CS 575 to allow Math 320 as a prereq in place of CS 303. Those are already approved and will be in effect for fall 2022.

CS 470, UDIE
R.B. Abhyankar is working on potentially submittting CS 470 as an Upper Division Integrative Elective. Information on UDIE's is here - https://www.indstate.edu/foundational-studies/upper-division-integrative-electives and information about proposing Foundational Studies courses is here - https://www.indstate.edu/academics/foundational-studies/advisors/propose-a-course
