In general, a course in a department outside Computer Science is acceptable as an elective if it can be taken as part of a degree program by students in that department. For example, a Biology (BIOL) course can be taken as an elective if it can be taken as a part of an undergraduate program in Biology.

Out of department computer related courses may not be taken as electives unless a written request is granted by the Undergraduate Program Director of Computer Science on a Student Request Form.

The following is a partial list of courses that students in B. Comp. Sci. programs may not take as elective credits. This list is not complete; if in doubt, consult the Computer Science Undergraduate Program Director.

  • DESC 381, 382, 384, 385, 445, 477, 481-484, 487, 490, 492, 495
