The Department of Mathematics, Computer Science, and Statistics offers majors in computer science, statistics, and mathematics. This administrative department and its majors emphasize critical thinking, problem-solving, and communication while stressing interdisciplinary learning.
The computer science major aims to do the following:
- Provide training in the theoretical and practical aspects of computer science. With attention to applications in science and business, the major directs students toward future graduate study or employment.
- Provide its majors with a general education in computer science and an advanced knowledge of systems and software security through a combination of specialized and general courses.
The major in computer science leads to either a B.A. or a B.S. degree.
