Description
The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science is uniquely qualified to offer programs that blend theory and practice in an innovative way, preparing students for career options in academic, corporate, and government areas. Classes are deliberately structured to enable students who pursue a major in Mathematics or Computer Science to learn in concert with Engineering and Science majors. In this setting, the student’s appreciation of the inherent power and cohesiveness of mathematics is enhanced by the highlighted role that mathematics plays in all fields.
Degree Requirements
