NEW! MS-CS FIVE-YEAR (4+1) UNDERGRAD PROGRAM:
The new CS 4+1 MS program offers an opportunity for Duke undergraduates to earn an MS degree in CS (MSCS) with an extra (fifth) year at Duke. The MSCS degree is in addition to your undergraduate degree. This 4+1 program may be a good path for you if you are able to take two or more “extra” graduate courses as an undergraduate, beyond any courses you need for your undergraduate degree. The 4+1 MSCS program is suitable primarily for CS majors and CS minors. Learn more.

New! COMPSCI 232 Discrete Mathematics and Proofs
COMPSCI 232 - This course takes a theoretical approach to probability, directed graphs, and Markov chains. Students will engage with proofs (both understanding proofs and constructing their own proofs) to investigate topics including discrete distributions, conditional probability, graphs, directed graphs, and Markov chains. Students will apply Markov models to novel contexts. COMPSCI 232 can be taken in lieu of COMPSCI 230.
New! RE-NUMBERED COURSES
These new courses, which have all been taught previously as Special Topics courses (i.e., CompSci 290 and/or 590), now have permanent course numbers. If you have already taken them as a Special Topics course, you may not take the re-numbered course.
COMPSCI 290 (old) → COMPSCI 207 Introduction to Mobile Application Development in iOS
COMPSCI 290 (old) → COMPSCI 345 Graphics Software Architecture
COMPSCI 290 (old) → COMPSCI 362 Introduction to Computational Imaging
COMPSCI 551 (old) → COMPSCI 581 Computer Security
COMPSCI 590 (old) → COMPSCI 526 Introduction to Data Science
COMPSCI 590 (old) → COMPSCI 535 Algorithmic Game Theory
COMPSCI 590 (old) → COMPSCI 574 Elements of Deep Learning
COMPSCI 590 (old) → COMPSCI 585 Secure Software Systems
COMPSCI 590 (old) → COMPSCI 586 Human-Centered Security and Privacy
OTHER COURSE OFFERINGS
COMPSCI 260 - Introduction to Computational Genomics will be offered Spring 2024.
S/U COURSE CREDIT
MATH 111, MATH 112 and COMPSCI 101 -- Only these three courses are accepted as S/U (if they can be taken S/U) and count towards degree requirements for CompSci majors and minors. For other majors and minors you plan to have, you need to check if they will also allow these courses to count if taken S/U.
For IDM majors, only these three courses -- MATH 111, MATH 112 and COMPSCI 101 -- are accepted as S/U (if they can be taken S/U) and count towards the CompSci part of your IDM. Check with your other major in your IDM to find out whether they will also allow these courses to count if taken S/U.
It is possible these courses may not be offered with the option to take them S/U.
REMINDER: CHANGES TO MAJOR/MINOR REQUIREMENTS
1 ) You are now able to use COMPSCI 210D in lieu of the COMPSCI 250D requirement. If you have already taken 250D, you will not be able to take 210D. If you are an ECE major, you must take COMPSCI 250D.
2 ) You are now able to use COMPSCI 232 in lieu of the COMPSCI 230 requirement.
3 ) For the CompSci majors and minor, only one CompSci course can be included whose primary purpose is not quantitative studies. Examples include COMPSCI 240, COMPSCI 247S, COMPSCI 255 and COMPSCI 342.
4 ) For the CompSci BS and BA majors as well as the Software Systems and AI/Machine Learning concentrations, COMPSCI 345 - Graphics Software Architecture AND COMPSCI 512 - Distributed Systems now count as systems core classes.
