The Department of Mathematics & Computer Science allows students to pursue graduate work, teach secondary school, obtain employment in government and industry, and acquire mathematical tools for use in the physical, social, life, and management sciences.
Since mathematical scientists use mathematics to solve real-world problems, a degree in mathematics and computer science prepares a student for a variety of positions in business, government, industry, and education (teaching K-12). The types of exciting and rewarding careers available include actuary, cryptologist, computer programmer, computer systems analyst, information scientist, mathematician, numerical analyst, operations research analyst, and statistician.
