Conclusions

Curricular revision requires extensive faculty time and effort.

Implementation in a small department at a liberal arts college requires:

Possible Revised CS Major and Program Tier 1
(target 100%)
Tier 2
(target 80%)
32 credit major — only basic requirements 70-85% 51-61%
32 credit major + talk at dept. seminar 73-89% 51-61%
expanded (38 credit major) 92% 73%
expanded (38 credit major) + talk at dept. seminar 96% 73%
expanded (38 credit major) + AI course + talk at dept. seminar 96% 78%
