Computer Science Minor | Mount St. Joseph University
Male and female students in class.

The computer science minor provides a student with a practical foundation in software development, as well as the theory and applications of databases and computer networks.

A Computer Science minor enhances a resumé and provides skills that are highly sought after by employers.  While computer science is its own academic field, its value is greatly enhanced when combined with another discipline. A minor in computer science complements a major in another discipline by giving students a greater depth of appreciation of computation and its possibilities.

This minor program provides students with useful skills in software development and computing principles. It provides a solid base to help students adapt to future changes in technology. In addition, with a computer science minor students will be able to solve complex and challenging problems.

A computer science minor can combine with any major. Whether a student is in the humanities or the sciences, this minor will give a student an added advantage in any professional setting.
