Computer Science Sequence

Sequence Requirements

The sequence requires six courses, distributed as follows:

  1. CSCI 051 CM - Introduction to Computer Science 
  2. MATH 055 CM - Discrete Mathematics  (or CSCI 55 PO - Discrete Mathematics)
  3. CSCI 062 CM - Data Structures and Advanced Programming 
  4. Three computer science electives


Learning Goals and Student Learning Outcomes of the Computer Science Program

Learning Goals

Students who graduate with the Computer Science Sequence are competent practitioners of the fundamentals of Computer Science in ways that supplement their respective majors.

Student Learning Outcomes

Students who complete the CMC Computer Science Sequence will:

  1. Understand the theoretical computer science necessary to follow and adapt to technological changes in students’ major disciplines and in computer science.
  2. Use fundamental mathematical abstraction to analyze problems and find their algorithmic solutions.
  3. Use fundamental data structures, algorithms, and programming techniques to implement programming projects of moderate to large size using mainstream programming languages.
  4. Apply the fundamental knowledge to the topics in advanced electives that are closely related to students’ major areas.
