The Department of Mathematical and Computing Sciences offers majors in mathematics, computer science, and statistics. The department also offers minors in mathematics, computer science, data science, and information technology. This administrative department and its majors emphasize critical thinking, problem-solving, and communication while stressing interdisciplinary learning.
The mathematics major aims to do the following:
- Offer all students the opportunity to make contact with classical and modern mathematics
- Allow students who elect mathematics as a major to prepare adequately for graduate work in mathematics or applied mathematics, secondary school teaching certification, or employment in business or industry such as work in the actuarial sciences
- Provide background courses in areas of pure and applied mathematics
The major in mathematics may lead to either the B.A. or the B.S. degree. For the B.S. degree, there are two different options: mathematics or actuarial mathematics.
