Applied Computer Science Minor


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Degrees Offered (Majors, Minors, listed by degree)

This minor is appropriate for any student who wishes to include an enhanced technical computer science background as part of their overall curriculum.

This minor partially satisfies the criteria for teaching endorsement in Computer Science (K-12), qualifying students to teach computer science at the level that they are certified to teach. Students who successfully complete the Applied Computer Science Minor with approved electives for teaching endorsement, an approved Teacher Certification program, and an endorsable major are eligible to apply for Washington State teacher certification and endorsement in Computer Science.  Teacher certification candidates must receive a C grade or higher in all minor and foundational courses, have a GPA of at least 3.0 for either the last 45 graded quarter credits or overall CWU/Transfer cumulative, and meet all Washington State teacher certification requirements. See a computer science advisor as soon as possible to develop a course of study.

Department-Approved Electives Credits: 8-12


The electives will be computer related and may be selected from computer science or the student’s major with the approval of an advisor.

Students pursuing the teaching endorsement in Computer Science must select either CS 311, CS 351, and CS 446 from the list above and their electives according to the guidelines below. Students not pursuing the teaching endorsement may select a wider selection of electives but must do so with the advice of the CS advisor.

Prescribed Electives for Teaching Endorsement


Total Credits: 34-38
