- Introduce major – Computer Science
- Define major
- What is computer science?
- the theory, experimentation, and engineering that form the basis for the design and use of computers. It involves the study of algorithms that process, store, and communicate digital information
- Give background on the major
- Undergraduates at USF who graduate will receive Bachelor of Science (BS) degree
- 52 units (20 units of lower division courses, 20 units of upper division courses, and 12 units of mathematics) – along with a science core requirement
- Some classes in lower division: CS 110 Introduction to Computer Science I and CS 212 Software Development (4 units)
- Some classes in upper division: CS 326 Operating Systems and CS 345 Programming Languages
- For math requirement you will take classes like: Math 109 Calculus and Analytic Geometry I & Math 201 Discrete Mathematics
