Abstract: The article deals with the problem of forming the content of computer science courses at non-core specialties in higher education institutions due to the changes in teaching computer science in Ukrainian schools. Some existing approaches to modernization of computer sciense higher education are considered. The attitudes of students who study at different curricula, to computer science education are analyzed. Possible ways of modernization of computer science courses at non-core university specialties are offered on the basis of psychological characteristics of secondary and higher school students and current social needs.
