  • The Faculty of Arts and Science and the Gina Cody School of Engineering and Computer Science have created a program of study which combines a comprehensive education in computer science and mathematics. This program resides in both Faculties. In the Gina Cody School of Engineering and Computer Science, it is offered under the aegis of the Bachelor of/ Baccalaureate in Computer Science. According to their preferences and aspirations, students may apply either for a Bachelor of/ Baccalaureate in Science program, or Bachelor of/Baccalaureate in Arts program or a Bachelor of/Baccalaureate in Computer Science program. The Computer Science program is described in Section 71.85 Data Science.
  • Students are responsible for satisfying their particular degree requirements.
  • For students in the Bachelor of/Baccalaureate in Science program or Bachelor of/Baccalaureate in Arts program, the Faculty of Arts and Science 24-credit and six-credit general elective rules are fulfilled.
