The Computer Science concentration is designed for students who wish to apply their knowledge to the development of systems level software programs.  These applications include but not limited to: real-time graphics simulations, distributed systems, and operating systems.  It will also be an asset for those students who are planning for graduate work in computer science.  The CS concentration supplements the computing core curriculum with courses in data structures, algorithms, computer architecture, and operating systems.  The concentration also requires additional hours of mathematics and science, including the calculus sequence required of mathematics majors and one additional lab science.

General Program Information


To earn a degree from ETSU, there are specific course requirements put forth by ETSU, by the Tennessee Board of Regents (TBR), by each college, and by each department. All students must meet the degree requirements at each of these levels. Please follow the format below:
