Computer Science Minors for Math Majors

csminor_mathmaj

All options and degrees choose CS 201 for the computing requirement in the math major.

For all options in the BS degree, 8 units of CS courses (for example CS 120 and CS 122) can double count as the lower division electives. For the Option in Applied Mathematics, CS 342 can double count as the upper division elective course. For the Option in Applied Mathematics/CS, CS 312 and 8 units of upper division CS courses can double count. For the Options in General Mathematics and Single Subject Credential (traditional), up to 8 units of upper division CS courses can double count (with adviser approval).

For the BA degree (except for the Blended Option for Single Subject Credential), 8 units from CS 312, CS 350, and CS 386 can double count as electives in related fields. In addition, for the Options in General Mathematics and Single Subject Credential (traditional), up to 8 units of upper division CS courses can double count (with adviser approval).

In the chart below, BA refers to the BA degree, BS to the BS degree with General, Pure, or Single Subject Credential Option, BSAP to the BS with Applied Math Option, and BSAC to the BS with Applied Math/CS Option. For each option, double counting of courses has been taken into account, assuming that all electives are in CS and not in mathematics or other disciplines.
