The Computer Science department offers a minor in Computer Science, Web Programming and Applications and a joint minor in Computer Science/Mathematics. We teach both computer science and technology so that students can develop the skills they need to pursue their careers and interests. Our interdisciplinary approach allows for students from all backgrounds and fields to find our courses both fun and practical. We can accommodate all levels so no prior background is required. If you do have prior computer experience, we would welcome you into our advanced classes.
All College of Arts Science students are eligible to pursue any of these programs. Non-CAS students will need written authorization from their home school. Students with transfer credits are required to complete half of their minor requirements at the Computer Science department.
Students must complete one CSCI-UA course with a grade of C or better before they may declare any major or minor in this department.
A grade of C or better is necessary in all courses to fulfill the minor requirements.
For more information about minor requirements, please see the College of Arts & Science degree requirements page.

Computer science is a rapidly growing field, and skilled
teachers are in demand. Become one of them. In this 18-credit
minor, you will take computer science classes at NYU's Courant
Institute of Mathematical Sciences and Tandon School of
Engineering, and computer science education courses and education
electives through NYU Steinhardt's Department of Teaching and
Learning. You'll be prepared to teach computer science and
programming to children and adolescents, working in schools,
museums, community centers, and other educational settings. This
minor is open to all NYU students.
