Basic computer science skills are the perfect complement to any degree program at Concordia. The Minor in Computer Science is designed to meet the growing demand for computer-literate professionals, and may offer students more career opportunities after graduation.
Minor in Computer Science (25 credits)
This minor must be combined with a major, specialization or honours program. It is only available to students enrolled in degree programs outside of the Gina Cody School of Engineering and Computer Science.
United States students: A U.S. Federal Student Aid-eligible version of this program is offered. This version meets all U.S. regulations (such as no co-operative education or e-courses) for eligible programs.

After your degree
Thanks to Concordia's emphasis on taking an interdisciplinary approach to your field of study, you'll graduate with a depth of knowledge informed by an understanding of how your subject connects to the wider world. You'll be ideally positioned to succeed in a professional role that demands rigorous analytical thinking, sharp communication skills and the ability to approach problem-solving from multiple dimensions.
The Computer Applications option gives doubly passionate students the flexibility to combine a traditional computer science degree and with a non-traditional field. Though many students complete a Major in Computation Arts or a Major in Mathematics and Statistics, students may declare a major or minor in any area outside the Faculty of Engineering and Computer Science.
