Computer Science Electives
- Intro 1 - FORTRAN 77
- Intro 2 - Pascal
- Assembly Language - VAX
- Data Structures - The best we had before OOP
- File Structures - Inputs and Outputs
- Digital Logic - required hardware course
- Computer Operations - micro code
- Compiler Design
- Operating Systems
- Artificial Intelligence - LISP
- Numerical Methods 1 and 2 - finding reasonably close solutions
to unsolvable problems.
Math and Science
- Calculus 1, 2, 3, and Advanced
- Linear Algebra
- Probability and Statistics 1 and 2 - a major reason that I do not
- Differential Equations
- Numerical Analysis (4000 level) - similar to Numerical Methods
- Physics 1 and 2 (10 hours including lab)
- Modern Physics 1 and lab (as a free elective, just for fun)
- Physical Geology (hey, at least one easy course!)
Humanoid and Other
- Intro to Fiction - Science Fiction (only English course I liked)
- Philosophy of Science Fiction and Fantasy
- French - 6 hours at 2000 level. Since I learned it in 5th grade

test out of the Freshman level.

- Logic 2 - Predicate Logic - not too hard
- Logic 3 - Meta Logic - Ouch!
From Fall 1982 until graduation, worked as a
