Mission Statement

The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science offers majors in mathematics and minors in mathematics, computational mathematics and computer science. The Department also offers programs for a major or minor in mathematics leading to either a Secondary or an Elementary certification and a program for a minor in computer science leading to Secondary certification. The Department continues to stress modern trends in mathematics, with a reasonable blend of the old and the new. Newer topics are included along with important traditional concepts. Not only is mathematics, with its logical approach and precision, an important part of our culture in its own right, but it is also important for its numerous applications. For these reasons the courses are offered for those interested in the cultural values of the subject as well as those who need mathematics for professional programs.
