Mathematics & Computer Science
The mathematics and computer science department offers both undergraduate and graduate degrees. On the undergraduate level degrees in Applied Mathematics and Secondary Mathematics Education are offered as well as a degree in CIS (Computer and Information Science). On the graduate level a master of science degree in computer education is offered.
The undergraduate program offers a rigorous curriculum emphasizing analytical thinking, problem solving and effective communication. Specifically, through its programs, the department seeks:
- To acquaint students with current developments in computer science, information systems, applied mathematics, mathematics education and computer education
- To equip graduates with knowledge and skills to secure professional positions in their fields
- To prepare students for successful transitions from the classroom to the work place
To achieve these objectives, the department encourages students to interact with faculty by providing individual advising and creating an environment that is conducive to continued professional growth. With the assistance of the department, students may pursue their professional goals through cooperative education work experiences or association with a mentor working in the same professional area.
The department of mathematics and computer science offers degrees in Mathematics (BS), Computer Science (BS), Cyber Security (BS), Management Information Systems (BS), and Mathematics for Secondary Education (BS).
Those seeking a major in mathematics may pursue either secondary teaching certification or applied mathematics, which can be readily combined with a dual degree in engineering from Washington University in St. Louis or the University of Missouri-Kansas City.
