Computer Science – Mathematics

Major

Overview

Computer and Data Sciences combines technical skills with the liberal arts to hone problem-solving skills that may be used in a wide array of settings. The integrated majors with mathematical sciences, chemistry, and physics deepen these skills while developing specific disciplinary expertise in these sciences.

Requirements

44 credits that include:

  • MTH 201
  • MTH 202
  • CSC 101 Introduction to Programming
  • CSC 236 Data Analysis and Visualization
  • CSC 336 Data Structures and Algorithms

Unique Opportunities

  • Each integrated major requires students to complete a culminating project applying computer and data sciences to the other discipline; these projects take place in the senior seminar.
  • Skills in problem-solving, oral presentation writing and critical thinking are refined and developed in the upper-level disciplinary courses taken in physics, as described in the Catalog sections for each integrated major.
