Minors in Programming

University of Rhode Island is pleased to introduce two new minors:

  • Web Programming
  • Enterprise Programming

Note: These are not available to Computer Science majors.


Rhode Island industries are interested in students who can program. If you are interested in computing and see a connection between your major and computing skills, this is for you. Experience in a Computer Science minor would enhance your marketability by adding computing skills to your major skills.

Incentives and Job market:

  • 50-75K starting salary for Web and Software Development
  • Huge shortage of people with these skills
  • First job out of college in software development will give you plenty of opportunities to grow into new roles within tech companies.
