The primary objective of the Department of Mathematics, Computer Science, & Statistics is to provide students with experiences in both theoretical and practical applications from one of three majors offered by the department.
Mathematics majors study the theoretical and practical applications of mathematics. Math majors also have the opportunity to collaborate with faculty on research projects, and some have co-authored papers or presented their work on campus and at regional meetings of the Mathematical Association of America.
Computer Science majors study the theoretical and practical applications of computer science. Topics include programming, operating systems, web programming, robotics, computer graphics, numerical computing and artificial intelligence, among others.
Statistics majors study the theoretical and practical applications of statistics, develop data analysis and problem-solving skills, and learn to use probability and sampling theory to study the relationships between groups of measurements. Two tracks are available: standard and actuarial.
