Computer Science/Specialization in Mathematics, BSCS


This specialization requires students to take 64 credits in computer science and 50 credits in mathematics. The combination of mature skills in applied mathematics and strong computer applications skills is a rare and valuable combination.

This bachelor of science in computer science degree requires students to complete at least 180 quarter credits with both a cumulative grade point average and a major/specialization grade point average of 2.50 or better.


  1. Students may take 5000-level CPSC electives to satisfy elective requirements with permission of chair. Up to ten credits of 5000-level CPSC electives may apply towards the Master of Science in Computer Science degree at Seattle University.
  2. Independent study courses (CPSC 3960, 4960, 4990) cannot be used to satisfy computer science electives.

III. Mathematics Specialization Requirements:

55 credits in mathematics and physics courses, including:


  1. MATH 3000 and MATH 3411 may not be used as math electives. 
  2. Math electives that are cross-listed with computer science electives may be used as either a math elective or as a computer science elective but not both.
