Majors and Minors

Entering the Major or Minor

You may enter a major in Computer Science or Engineering when you are admitted to SPU simply by identifying the major as your primary interest area. You can enter a minor through the Banner Information System during your first quarter at SPU.  Entrance to a major or minor in these programs after your first quarter at SPU requires only good academic standing (2.0 or higher SPU cumulative GPA).  

Select the major or minor you want to pursue from this list in the SPU Undergraduate Catalog. There you will find complete information on how and when to enter the Engineering and Computer Science programs, and what you must do to complete them.

Why I Teach at SPU

Carlos Arias Arevalo, Assistant Professor and Chair, Computer Science, Engineering and Computer Science Department

“I have two passions: computer science and teaching. One is my profession, the other is my vocation. It is a blessing to be part of the adventure students start in our classrooms. We can help them achieve their goals, not only by providing good theoretical and practical skills but also by giving them an integral formation. Being part of that adventure — exploring my faith and sharing my faith and my knowledge — is what makes SPU the perfect place for me to be.”
