The minor in Information Science consists of 5 full courses of 4 SH each and 2 laboratory courses of 1 SH each. Therefore, the minor normally requires 22 SH.
In Summer 2015, CCIS introduced the concept of meaningful minors. This idea permits a student to take one of the electives in the minor from a list of courses in other colleges that have some relation to computation or information. This allows a student to integrate the minor perhaps with a course in their major or perhaps with a course of interest from any other unit. Of course, a student may also take all 5 full courses in the minor from within CCIS.
Students in Computer & Information Science are not permitted to do a minor in CS or a minor in IS.
