Dual Degree: Computer Science

For an engineering student who would like to major in computer science, a typical 3 year schedule would be:


Fall 12-Week

Fall 3-Week

Spring 12-Week

Spring 3-Week


Cpsc 171 (Comp Sci)

Math 198 (Calc. I)

Freshman Colloquium

Cpsc 240 (Comp Ethics)

Cpsc 172 (Programming)

Math 199 (Calc. II)

First Year Seminar

Math 218 (Linear Alg.)


Cpsc 201 (Algorithms)

Math 200 (Calc. III)

Phys 213 (Physics I)

Math 243 (Diff. Eq.)

Cpsc 3XX

Cpsc 3XX

Phys 214 (Physics II)

Distribution Req.


Cpsc 252 (Comp Org)

Cpsc 3XX

Chem 120 (Gen Chem I)

Cpsc 2XX

Cpsc 3XX/400

Distribution Req.

Chem 121 (Gen Chem II)

Distribution Req.

Since some courses are offered on a rotating basis, a student's actual schedule may vary slightly from the above example.   Note that in order to meet Hiram College's graduation requirements, 2 more distribution courses must be taken.  This will result in an overload for two of the 12 week terms.  However it may be possible to take these courses without extra charge, depending on the number of credits in a semester.  Also in order to meet Hiram College's graduation requirements, it may be necessary to structure a Student Initiated Collegium so that each of the three courses may also be counted toward the Distribution Requirement.  It is VERY important that this be done the freshman year so that other courses can be adjusted accordingly.  See Dr. Van Wormer to discuss the possibilities.
