Major breakthroughs in many fields — from medicine and finance to music and sociology — have been made because computer science was applied to them in innovative ways. A minor in Computer Science will help you understand the technological innovations and software you will be working with. No matter your major field, this minor can greatly expand what you can do and what sort of jobs will be open to you.
