Mathematics is the art and science of abstraction; it is the systematic study of quantity, structure, space, and change. To paraphrase Newton, it is the language in which the universe is written. The study of mathematics provides the abilities to analyze data, discover patterns, and reason logically.
Computer Science is the fusion of abstraction and technology; it is the study of representing, processing, and communication information, the design and analysis of algorithms, and the implementation of solutions through both hardware and software. The study of computer science is both theoretical and practical, and provides the abilities to develop and to maintain software. The department offers a computer science major and allows students to specialize in Game Programming and/or Cyber Security.
The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science offers the following programs:
Concentrations in Game Development or Information Security are an attractive option for students majoring in Computer Science or Computer and Management Information Systems.
Students may consider entering the joint degree program in engineering.
Mathematics majors can also enter the Scholar Teacher Education Program in the Ruth S. Ammon School of Education.
