Individual study courses (40x courses) provide upper division Computer Science students with an opportunity to learn outside of a regular classroom setting, for example, in seminars or individualized study courses such as internship or research. Out-of-classroom learning experiences can greatly enrich the undergraduate major; students are encouraged to explore 40x opportunities and to schedule an appointment to discuss any of them with a CIS faculty advisor.
To register for an individual study course, students should fill out a
All 40x courses (except CIS 405 Reading) are Pass/NoPass only.
A maximum of 8 credits in CIS courses with numbers less than 410 may be applied to the Computer Science major upper-division electives requirement. Courses numbered 400-409 may be taken for a maximum of 4 credits when used to satisfy this requirement. Courses numbered 399, 407, or 410 may be repeated only with different course subtitles.
