The Supplementary Minor Concentration may be taken only by students registered in the Major Concentration Computer Science or the Major Concentration Software Engineering. There may be no overlap in credits taken for this Supplementary Minor Concentration and the Major Concentration Computer Science/Software Engineering. Taken together, these constitute a program very close to the Major Computer Science offered by the Faculty of Science. Students must get their selection of courses approved by an Academic Adviser in the School of Computer Science.
Students with two programs in the same department/unit must have a third program in a different department/unit to be eligible to graduate. Please refer to the Faculty of Arts regulations for "Faculty Degree Requirements", "About Program Requirements" and "Departmental Programs" for the Multi-track System options.
