Department of Computer Science

The Department of Computer Science offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science and a Minor in Computer Science.

Admission Policy

The goal of the Department of Computer Science is to provide undergraduate students a program of study with the highest possible standards. To achieve this goal, the admission policy of the Department of Computer Science is designed to identify those students most likely to succeed in their undergraduate computer science education. All applicants for admission to the Department of Computer Science will be admitted to the Department as pre-computer science (PCS) students.

In order to declare Computer Science as a major, a PCS student must satisfy the following criteria.

  • Completion with a grade of "Cā€“" or better of MAT 1214 Calculus I
  • Completion with a grade of "Cā€“" or better of CS 1713 Introduction to Computer Programming II and CS 1711 Introduction to Computer Programming II Recitation

A PCS student who fails to complete the criteria to change the major to CS within two years from the date of admission to the Department of Computer Science will be changed from PCS to undeclared (UND) in the University student record system. The student must choose a major other than computer science. A computer science minor is, however, available to all UTSA students who seek to complement a different academic major with a strong foundation in computer science.
