You can tailor your degree timeline to suit your needs, but you must complete a minimum of 45 credit hours of Applied Computer Science courses to graduate. All general education coursework will be satisfied by your prior bachelor’s degree. The 45 credit hours consist of 26 credit hours of required courses and 19 credit hours of elective courses. 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 and/or dual majoring.
Effective in Spring 23, core courses must be passed with a C- or better. Elective courses must be passed with a grade of a D- unless serving as a prerequisite, in which case a C- or better will be required. Students must maintain an overall GPA of a 2.0 or higher.
Please note that courses will require a computer that meets the Applied Computer Science program’s minimum computer standards.
