Post-baccalaureate students can tailor their degree timelines but must complete a minimum of 45 credit hours of CSPB courses to graduate. All general education coursework will be satisfied by their prior bachelor’s degree. The current elective classes emphasize data analysis, including the methods and mechanisms used to process big data. Sample lectures are linked for each course in the table below.

Per CU policy, Applied Computer Science students are prohibited from taking on-campus courses.
