Mathematics, Computer Science, & Statistics
The Department of Mathematics, Computer Science, and Statistics offers an introduction to the concepts, structures, and techniques of our three fields of study. It is the philosophy of the department that all students of the quantitative sciences should have an understanding of, and appreciation for, the theoretical aspects of our fields as well as their far-reaching applications.
The skills of analytic thinking and logical argument combined with the ability to communicate successfully provide the fundamentals of a good liberal arts education. Mathematics, computer science, and statistics are generally considered essential for persons interested in the natural and social sciences. Majors in our department will be well prepared for graduate study, secondary school teaching, or employment in government or industry. Professional opportunities are available in all analytically oriented fields.
