Preparing you for today's in-demand careers in math & computer science

Careers that require math skills are expected to grow at a rapid pace over the next decade, Virtually every field from business, education, science and mathematics benefit from the analytical and conceptual mindset of a mathematics major. If you have a penchant for solving problems in technology you can pursue jobs as a computer scientist, or a hardware engineer with a degree in computer science. If you prefer to apply your technical skills you can support and add value to business organizations, then become that application analyst or IT consultant with a degree in computer information systems.

Degree Options

  • BA Mathematics

    A degree in Mathematics will prepare you to pursue careers in a variety of fields like business, science, math or education.

  • BA Computer Science

    A degree in Computer Science will prepare you for the challenges of today's high demand computer industry.

  • BS Computer Information Systems

    A degree in Computer Information Systems will prepare you to enter any of the high demand fields requiring an IT consultant or an applications analyst.

  • Mathematics Education Programs

    In partnership with the School of Education we offer degrees that prepare you for teaching at the elementary or secondary level. The full list of Education degree offerings is as follows:Childhood Education 1-6/Early Childhood Birth-2, Childhood Education/Special Education, Five Year Combined Degree Childhood Education/Special Education, Five Year Combined Degree Childhood/TESOL, Adolescence Education, Adolescence Education/Special Education, Five Year Combined Degree Adolescence/Special Education or the Five Year Combined Degree Adolescence Education/TESOL program requirements, refer to "Mathematics Education Program of Study" in the "School of Education and Human Services" section of the catalog.

  • Mathematics Double Majors with Education Programs

    Adolescence Education programs in Mathematics that may be combined with a Mathematics—B.A. program are:

    • Adolescence Education - Mathematics—B.A.
    • Adolescence Education - Mathematics/Special Education—B.A.
    • Adolescence Education - Mathematics/Special Education—B.A./M.S.
    • Adolescence Education - Mathematics/TESOL—B.A./M.S.

    Students doing two majors must complete all program requirements for both. For Adolescence Education Mathematics majors, the B.A. Mathematics program of study requires:

    • MAT 3240- Adolescence Education majors should take MAT 3240 as one of their 6 credits of Mathematics Electives to apply to both programs.
    • MAT 4600(Internship) - Beyond the 6 Mathematics Electives required, Adolescence Education majors must take one additional 3 credit MAT course to be substituted for MAT 4600 (Internship), under consultation with the Mathematics chairperson.
    • For Education majors, MAT 3200 is a curriculum course for educators and cannot be applied to the B.A. Mathematics requirements.
