BS in Mathematics and Computer Science
The B.S. in Mathematics and Computer Science provides students with a strong foundation in both fields. Core courses from the Mathematics and Computer Science curricula will aid students to develop critical thinking and communication skills, as well as a technical and practical understanding of programming and algorithm design. Graduating students will be prepared for any industry jobs requiring scientific computing skills and the ability to analyze, design, and implement algorithms, such as data mining, finance, and risk analysis. This major also prepares students for advanced degrees in computer science, mathematics, and the STEM fields.
