The Computer Science minor is designed to give Non-CS majors a well rounded understanding of the field of Computer Science. After completing the minor, they will be able to effectively apply Computer Science to their own major. See Required Courses.
The purpose of the minor in Web Application Development is to provide programming-level training in the technology needed to develop database-driven web applications.
Scientific Computing is a field of applied Computer Science where computing theories and software techniques are used to serve and advance many diverse fields, including but not limited to business, science, engineering, and social science. The Scientific Computing minor program is designed to help students understand the development and use of Scientific Computing, as it relates to specific disciplines.
Please note that the Scientific Computing Minor is still awaiting approval at the University level. Students may not be able to enroll in the minor until approval is granted. This minor will appear in the forthcoming 2014-2015 University Catalog.
The Engineering Dual Degree program offers students the opportunity to begin their academic career by pursuing a Bachelors degree at Coastal Carolina University while preparing for an Engineering degree from Clemson University.
The student will spend three years at Coastal Carolina University majoring in one of four degrees. The student will then spend two years and one summer at Clemson University majoring in one of eight engineering degrees that is compatible with their major at Coastal Carolina University. While at Clemson University, the student will complete the remaining courses needed for their Coastal Carolina University degree. More Information.
