Mathematics is the foundation of the physical sciences and a tool of virtually all disciplines. And as computing becomes increasingly significant in our daily lives, the study of computer science becomes ever more essential. The Mathematics and Computer Science Department develops in students not only a solid foundation in analytic thinking, but also an appreciation of the nature of the disciplines themselves. Courses give students proficiency in the subjects, as well as foster a spirit of creativity, enterprise, and ethical responsibility. Majors in the department may prepare for graduate work in mathematics or computer science or for careers in secondary school mathematics education, business, industry, government, law, medicine, or engineering.
