Department of Mathematics and Statistics
The Department of Mathematics and Statistics offers a four-year program in mathematics that leads to the bachelor of science degree and curriculum that leads to a minor in mathematics. The curriculum is designed to meet the needs of three groups of students: (1) those who plan to seek employment in business, industry, or government, (2) those who plan to attend graduate school to continue their study of mathematics or a related field, and (3) those who plan to be secondary school teachers.
Students majoring in mathematics are encouraged to use their elective hours to complete a second major, or at least a concentration of 18 hours or more, in the field of their choice. For example, students interested in computer science are advised to complete the following courses:
- COMS 1013 Programming Foundations I and COMS 1011 Programming Foundations I Lab
- COMS 1403 Orientation to Computing, Information, and Technology
- COMS 2003 Microcomputer Applications
- COMS 2203 Programming Foundations II
- COMS 2213 Data Structures
Students interested in business electives are advised to complete:
- BUAD 2003 Business Information Systems
- BLAW 2033 Legal Environment of Business
- ACCT 2004 Accounting Principles I and ACCT 2000 Accounting Principles I Lab
