- Starting the fall of 2021, Baruch College will offer a Computer Science (CS) minor.
This page provides the basic information about the program, and answers for common questions.
An understanding of programming is useful for a wide variety of careers: strong programming abilities are vital to securing employment in the tech industry, and can also prove extremely useful in marketing, finance, and the sciences. These are rapidly growing fields, with careers that are intellectually rewarding and well-compensated. The minor is also a valuable step for students who are considering pursuing graduate study in computer science.
The minor is focused on both fostering practical skills and introducing the fundamental ideas of computer science. Students who complete the minor will have exposure to widely used programming languages and develop a mindset for solving challenging problems. Both are essential for those who wish to engage with the most exciting modern topics in computer science, such as machine learning.
The minor consists of
