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 and Mathematics.

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 305  and MATH 414  cannot be used to meet the minimal 2.00 grade point average requirement.
