|Mathematics & Computer Science|
With a range of course offerings beginning with introductory mathematics, this department provides a strong undergraduate program. The department aims to prepare students to continue their education in graduate study; to fulfill the mathematics requirement and to provide the foundation for study in such related fields as chemistry, physics and computers; to give students the necessary background to enter certain areas of business and industry; and to acquaint students with the basic concepts of mathematics, an essential aspect of a liberal arts education. No course with a grade lower than C- will be accepted toward a major or minor in mathematics. In addition, a C average (calculated as the College calculates G.P.A.) must be maintained over all courses required for a major or a minor.
The computer science major is designed to give a student in this program a solid background in applied and theoretical computer science. Graduates of the program will have the skills necessary to enter the business world or pursue graduate study in computer science. The variety of computer offerings allows ample opportunity for non-majors to increase their computer skills. All undergraduates are encouraged to take as many computer courses as possible to complement their major programs. No course with a grade lower than C- will be accepted toward a major or a minor in computer science. In addition, a C average (calculated as the College calculates G.P.A.) must be maintained over all courses required for a major or minor.
