# Minor in Applied Computational Science

Students interested in pursuing this minor should contact Professor Peter Love.

## Program Requirements and Policies

- The Minor in Applied Computational Science requires five courses and a capstone experience.
- To satisfy the minor the classes must be completed with a grade of C or above.

## Course Requirements

- Preparation courses (2 Classes) - Students must take classes from the lists below, or classes in the same discipline that have the listed classes as prerequisites. Pre-matriculation credits may not be used to satisfy these requirements
- Physical and Natural Science students: Comp 11 AND Comp 15
- Computer Science Students: Two classes from:
- Astronomy 31: Stellar Structure & Evolution, Astronomy 32: Galactic and Extragalactic Astrophysics
- Bio 13: Cells And Organisms W/lab, Bio 14: Organisms And Population W/ Lab
- Chem 1: Chemical Fundamentals W/ Lab, Chem 2: General Chemistry II with Lab, Chem 11: General Chemistry, Chem 12: General Chemistry.
- EOS 1: Introduction To The Dynamic Earth W/lab, EOS 2: Environmental Geology W/lab, EOS 5: Introduction to Oceanography, EOS 51: Global Climate Change
- Physics 11: General Physics I W/lab, Physics 12: General Physics II W/lab

- Mathematics Students and all other majors: COMP 15 is required from category A) and at least one course is required from category B).

- Capstone: The Capstone requirement can be satisfied by one of the following:
- Senior thesis: The thesis can satisfy the capstone project requirement, but the senior thesis class cannot count towards the five credits required for the minor.
- Class project in an approved list of courses from option 2, with a grade of C or above
- Research evaluated by a presentation.
