PROFESSOR RONALD L. MCCARTY, in charge

This major builds on a firm foundation of computer science, mathematics, and natural science courses. Students prepare for the major by taking lower-division courses in programming, discrete math, and computer organization. They then complete upper-division courses in data structures, data base management systems, programming language fundamentals, graphics and visualization, and systems programming. Students must complete an eight-credit physics sequence, four credits in biology or chemistry, and an additional ten credits in a combination of natural science, math, or statistics electives. Finally, they must take at least nine credits of computer science electives and nine credits of supporting courses.

Graduates of this program will be prepared for a wide variety of computer oriented careers in business, industry, and government, particularly in areas that require the practical application of computer science concepts and techniques to solving problems in the natural sciences. In addition, graduates will be prepared to pursue graduate study in computer science or in computationally intensive sub-disciplines of the natural sciences, such as bio-informatics, computational biology, computational physics, or computational chemistry.

For a B.S. degree in Computer Science, a minimum of 124 credits is required. A student enrolled in this major must earn at least a grade of C in each 300- and 400-level course in the major field.

Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering (PNG E)

PROFESSOR ROBERT W. WATSON, Undergraduate Program Officer

The undergraduate curriculum in petroleum and natural gas engineering has been designed to equip the student with the fundamentals necessary to achieve lifelong professional growth. Graduates are prepared to enter both the private and public sectors as petroleum and natural gas engineers or to pursue further education at the graduate level.

The courses are structured to serve as a melting pot for theory, application to case studies and engineering project design. This enables the student to appreciate and understand that a successful engineering design project requires a sound theoretical foundation, experimentation and engineering judgment. The thrust of the program structure emphasizes the fundamentals of mathematics and earth and engineering sciences and integrates them in application to traditional petroleum and natural gas engineering topics. Design projects are required throughout the curriculum. Execution of these projects requires an amalgamation of problem formulation strategies, testing of alternative design methodologies, feasibility studies, and economic and environmental considerations. Graduates of the program are expected to perform in various facets of the petroleum industry including drilling, production, evaluation, transportation and storage. The petroleum and natural gas engineering faculty and staff are committed to an interactive teaching and leaming environment to ensure that the student is an active participant in the learning process. General education opportunities are sufficiently broad and diverse in scope to enable the student to tailor the educational experience to particular interests, background and expected role in society.

Integration of knowledge and skills acquired during the course of study enables the students/graduates of this program to do the following:

The Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).

For the B.S. degree in Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering, a minimum of 128 credits is required.

Proposed effective date: Summer Semester 2001

Classics and Ancient Mediterranean Studies (CAMS)

PROFESSOR GERALD N. KNOPPERS, Head, Department of Classics and Ancient Mediterranean Studies

Classics and Ancient Mediterranean Studies is concerned with the civilizations of the ancient Mediterranean world, including the ancient Greeks, Romans, and the peoples of Egypt and the Near East. The study of these civilizations includes their languages and literatures, history and politics, religion and mythologies, philosophies, and material culture. Students electing the CAMS major follow one of three options. The Ancient Mediterranean Archaeology (AMA) Option is designed for students interested in the physical evidence for ancient Mediterranean cultures, including the rise and development of settlements and cities; ceramics, metals, stone, and organic remains; and population changes over time. The Classical Language Option requires study of Greek or Latin, or a combination of both languages, and is recommended especially for students planning to pursue any classical subject in graduate school or to teach Latin at the secondary level. Students in the Classical Language Option are urged to schedule one course in historical linguistics or comparative grammar. The Classics and Ancient Mediterranean Studies (CAMS) Option is suitable for students interested in a broadly interdisciplinary study of the cultures of the ancient Mediterranean and does not require study of language, although students are encouraged to study the appropriate ancient languages. All students in the major are particularly encouraged to participate in one of the Penn State Education Abroad Programs and/or archaeological field schools in the Mediterranean area. Approved archaeological fieldwork is required for the AMA Option. Up to 15 credits of appropriate education abroad courses may be applied to requirements for the major.

For the B.A. degree in Classics and Ancient Mediterranean Studies, a minimum of 123 credits is required.

CLASSICS AND ANCIENT MEDITERRANEAN STUDIES MINOR: Students must select 18 credits from courses in Classics and Ancient Mediterranean Studies (CAMS), at least 6 at the 400 level. A grade of C or better is required for all courses in the minor.
