The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science and a minor sequence in computer science for students majoring in other fields. Students may choose to concentrate in database and software engineering, communications and networks, or web programming and development. Students obtaining this degree will be prepared for positions in private industry or government or to pursue an advanced degree in their area of specialization.
All entering freshmen and transfer students who intend to major in computer science are required to take the university placement examination in mathematics. These students may not register for any mathematics or computer science course until they have taken the examination. This examination is designed to place students into the appropriate mathematics course from basic mathematics to calculus.
Admission to the program is contingent upon completion of CPTR 1100 and CPTR 2100, a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or higher, and acceptance by the department. The department will not accept D grades in any required major courses or required supportive courses, either as transfer credit or completed at Chicago State University.
Requirements include completion of 120 semester hours of work: 39 hours in general education; 5 additional hours in the natural sciences as specified in required supportive courses; 46 hours in computer science; 40 hours in required supportive courses; writing a honors thesis, and passing the examination on the state and federal constitutions. By demonstrating proficiency, a student may be able to obtain credit for certain mathematics and computer science courses at the recommendation of the department.
