You can earn a technology specialization — without being a tech major
The VCU College of Engineering’s Department of Computer Science now offers a Fundamentals of Computing specialization that is open to all VCU undergraduates regardless of major.*
To earn the specialization, students complete four courses:
CMSC 191: Intro to Computing (prerequisite)
CMSC 320: Software Engineering and Web Development
CMSC 330: Data Science Skills
CMSC 340: Cybersecurity Skills
Students who complete the prerequisite course and both Data Science Skills and Cybersecurity Skills are eligible for:
