Minors in Computer Science

The minor in Computer Science is open to all students not majoring in either Computer Science or Information Systems or minoring in Information Systems. To declare the minor in Computer Science, students must complete CSE 114 (or 160) and either CSE 214 (or 260) or CSE 215 (or 150) with grades of B- or higher in each course. Priority is given to students with a GPA of 3.20 or higher in these CSE courses and a cumulative GPA of 3.00 or higher. For students who have completed more than two CSE courses applicable towards minor entry, the GPA in CSE courses is computed using the highest grades earned in two of CSE 114, CSE 214 and CSE 215. At most one of the courses used to meet minor entry requirements may be repeated. Transfer students who have completed equivalent courses at another school with grades of B- or higher need not retake these courses, but should keep in mind that grades do not transfer and grade point averages are calculated on the basis of courses completed at Stony Brook. Only courses transferred before matriculation can be used for CSE minor admission purposes. Admission is competitive and contingent upon program capacity.
