Certainly the impact of mathematics and computer applications has revolutionized the manner in which our daily lives proceed. We believe that it is important to provide students with a sound foundation in the discipline of mathematics and to offer the latest advances in the technological art of computer science.

The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science offers majors in Computer Science  (Business Information Systems Track, Information Technology Track, Web Development Track) and Mathematics .

In conjunction with the School of Education, the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science offers a licensure program in Integrated Mathematics. This area of specialty prepares students for secondary teaching licensure for grades 7-12.

Students pursuing the Integrated Mathematics licensure program must maintain a minimum 2.50 major gpa and a 2.75 cumulative gpa to progress through the teacher licensure program. To register for education courses at the 300 level or above, acceptance into Teacher Education is required. See details of the assessment requirements and criteria for teacher licensure programs in the School of Education and Human Development .

Computer Science

The mission of the Computer Science program is to train competent, ethical computer scientists who are educated within the Christian liberal arts tradition from which future career and academic opportunities can emerge. This philosophy of education places life-long learning as the key to a fulfilling and meaningful life.

Student Learning Outcomes

  1. Students will develop a knowledge base in a breadth of computer science genres.
  2. Students will understand and apply ethics in computer science.
  3. Students will appreciate and be capable of life-long learning in computer science.

Mathematics

The mission of the mathematics program is to provide students with a mathematical education which prepares them to understand, communicate, and apply mathematics. As a result, our graduates will be able to continue their mathematical education in graduate school, become effective secondary school mathematics teachers, or apply their mathematical knowledge and thinking ability in service or industry.

Student Learning Outcomes

  1. Students will understand a spectrum of mathematical concepts.
  2. Students will effectively communicate mathematics.
  3. Students will demonstrate an ability to apply mathematical thinking to solve problems.
