The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science offers majors in mathematics, computer science and information systems management. Students gain fundamental knowledge, as well as real-world practical experience, using the latest techniques and software in each field.

The mathematics and computer science majors are based on the guidelines recommended by the Mathematical Association of America and the Association for Computing Machinery, respectively. Information systems management is an interdisciplinary major in which students not only receive a thorough background in computer science and information technology, but also learn the critical skills of workplace management, communication and conflict resolution that will prepare them to lead IT departments and organizations.

Mathematics and computer science graduates are prepared for careers such as programmers, analysts, researchers, network administrators, technicians, statisticians and information technology specialists, as well as top graduate schools in technology and mathematics.

## Web Design and Development Concentration

The Web Design and Development concentration gives students practical knowledge and experience building aesthetically pleasing, intuitively designed and professional websites. Students begin by learning how to design and build static web pages with HTML5, CSS3 and how to program in the Java programming language. Next, students learn the JavaScript programming language and use it to create dynamic content in a web page. To complete the concentration, students learn how to write dynamic 3D animations in the HTML5 canvas object, using the Babylon.js JavaScript library and associated tools.

Consists of 13 credits, including the following courses:
