Department of Mathematics and Computer Science


Programs offered by the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science are designed to prepare students for mathematics and computer science related vocations—including the teaching of mathematics and computer science. The programs also prepare the student for graduate study in these subject areas.

The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science offers the following options: (1) the Bachelor of Science degree program with a Computer Science  major, and (2) the Bachelor of Science in Computer Information Systems   degree program.  Student programs are planned in consultation with an adviser from the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science.

A minor for non-education degree programs is offered in Computer Science.

An overall grade point average of 2.00 (C) or higher in all required courses is needed for successful completion of any of the programs, including minors.

For non-educational programs, grades obtained in MATH 101  MATH 305  ,and MATH 414  cannot be used to meet this minimal 2.00 grade point average requirement.

Mathematics Placement

Students will be allowed to register for mathematics courses based on ACT/ SAT mathematics scores. The cutoffs are the following:

Course ACT* SAT*
 MATH 101C General Mathematics   =<17 <440
MATH 103C College Algebra   18 440
MATH 101 General Mathematics   19 460
MATH 103 College Algebra   19 540
MATH 104 College Trigonometry    25 580
MATH 105 Elementary Statistics   25 580
MATH 200 Introductory Geometry   23 540
CS 201 Introduction to Computer Programming I   19 460
MATH 253 Calculus with Analytic Geometry I   28 630
*Minimum test score required for placement

Equivalent Proficiency for MATH 103 and 104

Students who achieved a mathematics ACT score of 25 or higher may have MATH 103  waived as a course prerequisite and as a program requirement for degrees in science and mathematics. Students who achieved a mathematics ACT score of 28 or higher may also have MATH 104  waived as a course prerequisite and program requirement for degrees in science and mathematics.
