Undergraduate minor programs

Computer science minor

Adding a computer science minor to your Wayne State degree will provide you with the opportunity to learn coding logic and data structures, which are the foundation to computer programming and software engineering. The required courses for the minor are also the foundational courses for the major. Therefore, if a student decides to change from a minor to a major, the classes are already aligned.
