BA-ACS 2017 Concentrations

The Bachelor of Arts in Applied Computer Science program has a number of concentrations for the 2017 catalog year. You may see what pertains to each concentration below. You must pick a concentration, then a minor within the concentration, to complete the Applied Computer Science degree.

Each of these concentrations have credit hours which very based on the minor chosen. At the end of your degree, you must have a minimum of 120 credit hours to graduate with a Bachelor's degree. You will therefore have a varying amount of free elective hours to fulfill to reach that 120 credit hour mark, depending upon the minor you complete.
