Minors Offered by the Department
The Minor in Computer and Information Sciences
A minor in computer science complements a major in another discipline by giving the student a greater depth of appreciation of the inner workings of computer technology, it's possibilities and limitations. The courses in the minor provide the student with a practically useful level of skill at computer programming as well. Specific requirements for the minor can be found in the University catalog at requirements for the minor in Computer and Information Sciences. Prior to applying for the minor, students should have completed CISC courses up to and including CISC 181 and must have completed MATH 241 or MATH 210. Acceptance into the minor is limited by program capacity. Apply online at http://www.udel.edu/udsis-student.
The Bioinformatics Minor for non-CS majors
The minor in Bioinformatics is given by the Department of Computer and Information Sciences and is intended for students who are majoring in the Life Sciences, ie. Biology, Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Animal & Food Science, Plant & Soil Science, Marine Biology. The Bioinformatics Minor provides students in these disciplines with expertise in computational approaches to the life sciences. Specific requirements are outlined in the University catalog at requirements for the Bioinformatics minor.
The Computational Biology Minor for CS majors
Computer science majors interested in applying their expertise to problems in the Life Sciences should consider the Computational Biology minor offered by the Biological Sciences Department. Specific requirements are outlined in the University catalog at requirements for the Computational Biology Minor.
