Offered on the Crete and Lincoln campuses

The computer science major provides students with the technical and theoretical competency to enter the industry in software development or information technology and security-related areas, or to pursue a graduate degree in computer science or a related field. The major is available to all undergraduate students who can complete IST 314  and IST 315 (which are taught only on the Crete campus), or transfer in equivalents for these two courses.

Complete an IST faculty-approved experiential activity related to the student's emphasis area. Such activities include, but are not limited to, formal internships (IST 421) and industry experience (including full-time, part-time, work-study, and summer positions). Three credits of IST 421 Information Science and Technology Internship fulfill this requirement but do not count towards the 36 IST credits for the major.
