a quick 2cent reply and one
significant edit to jimR's
suggestion on what a DH ugrad
might take:

> 2. One year of calculus
> 3. One programming language
> 4. .xml, .css. .php, .html (varieties)

i would edit the list as follows:

> 2. One year of DISCRETE mathematics
   (while understanding rates of growth
    is important, more students need to see
    discrete math topics, for example,
    counting, logic, graphs, trees,
    regular expressions, etc)

> 3. TWO SEMESTERS of AT LEAST 
      one programming language
