Are you a sophomore considering declaring a CS concentration? See this page for the steps to do so. You can also attend the Creating your path in CS panel and discussion on November 6th as well as the WICS ConSidering CS event on October 31. We recommend you take a look at the various resources on this page as well. An in-person meeting is not required to declare the CS concentration, but you are very welcome to see the CS DUSs - see the office hours below. We recommend you fill the plan of study excel file before the meeting, as doing so is a good way to get a sense for the requirements.
