Are you a science major who wants to learn how to code? The Department of Computer Science is offering a new minor for non-CS majors entitled “Minor in Computing Applications.” Over two years, students in this minor will take five courses covering topics like web programming, data structures and databases, and will learn about real-life applications of computer science to their major through an independent project. Prior coding experience is not needed, and small group mentoring by CS majors is provided throughout the program. The minor is offered through the Promoting Inclusivity in Computing (PINC) program, which aims to improve computing literacy and to increase the diversity of students entering the tech workforce. Loaner laptops will also be available to the students through the PINC program.
To learn more and apply for the first course in the Fall 2018 semester, visit the PINC website.
