Whether you are majoring in a physical, biological or social science, you can enhance your career with a background in computer sciences. The Computer Sciences Certificate is a program designed to deepen and validate your computing savvy for your future career prospects and/or graduate school. Compared to a major in computer sciences, the certificate requires fewer courses and offers more flexibility in course selection. You are eligible to enroll in the Computer Sciences Certificate program if:
- you are currently enrolled in a bachelor’s degree program at UW–Madison, and
- you are not majoring in computer sciences, electrical engineering, or computer engineering.
New declaration requirements for the Computer Sciences Certificate will be enforced effective August 26, 2019. See the Guide for more details.
