Computer Science-Mathematical Science

Why a Degree in Computer Science-Mathematical Science?

Collaboration between the Department of Computer Science and the Department of Mathematical Sciences has enabled students to complete a Bachelor of Science degree with a combined major in Computer Science-Mathematical Sciences.

The purpose for the combined program is to provide a thorough background in both allied disciplines and to inculcate a deeper understanding of their goals and methods. A student must complete 60 credits in the two disciplines: 30 of these credits in computer science courses and 30 of these credits in mathematical sciences courses. A minimum grade of "C-" and a 2.0 grade point average is required in all courses.

Acquiring an academic background of computer science skills and ability to solve complex mathematical problems is ideal for various career fields. Students who pursue this pathway would be able to apply to graduate schools in either discipline.
