PEAK Minors

PEAKS | PSE

Computer science is one of the most rapidly changing and most highly interdisciplinary fields of academic inquiry. Because the ideas and techniques of information theory underlie large parts of the workings of modern society, computer science is very effective when paired with other studies. Conceptual developments pioneered by computer scientists have assisted researchers in areas as diverse as biology, sociology, music, and literary analysis. The Computer Science minor both develops and enhances students' analytical and problem-solving capabilities and prepares them to apply information-theoretical ideas and sensibility in their chosen careers.
