Concentrations BA C&I

Concentrations BA C&I


The BA in C&I offers various optional concentrations that will allow the students for focus their studies on specific area within the field of Computer Science.  While the Computer Science department will do its best to offer the courses required to achieve concentration, not all the concentrations courses will be available every semester. As a result, the students may not be able to satisfy formal concentration requirements prior to graduation. The Computer Science department wants to stress that the concentrations are optional, and that the department cannot promise that all students will be able to achieve the concentration(s) of their choice prior to graduation. The Computer Science department strongly encourages the students to consult the CS advising regarding available concentrations and formally declare the desired concentration as soon as possible.
