The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science offers programs of study leading to the degrees Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Mathematics and Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Computer Science. It also offers interdisciplinary undergraduate and graduate certificate programs in Data Visualization and Analysis, jointly with the Department of Psychology. In addition, the department offers several options for 3 + 2 programs that result in the graduate M.S. in Data Science and undergraduate B.S. degrees in either Mathematics or Computer Science majors. Financial Mathematics majors have an option for a 4+1 program that results in either a M.S. Financial Engineering or M.S. Financial Analytics from Steves Institute of Technology.
The department aims to develop students’ analytical skills and attitudes necessary for the effective understanding and application of mathematics and computer science.
A variety of program options are available for undergraduates majoring in mathematics or computer science. Students’ programs are determined in consultation with a faculty adviser from the department and tailored to each undergraduate’s career goals. With the proper choice of electives, students will be prepared to enter teaching, industry or graduate study in mathematics, computer science, business, law or medicine.
Programs for undergraduates majoring in secondary education with mathematics as a teaching field are determined in consultation with a faculty adviser from the Department of Educational Studies in the College of Education and Human Services, as well as the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science.
The Center for Developmental Mathematics offers classes to strengthen the mathematical foundation for students, and tutoring in mathematics and statistics in the Mathematics Learning Lab in association with the Ruth Sharkey Academic Resource Center. For further information, please refer to the Mathematics Learning Lab web page at www.shu.edu/academics/artsci/math-compsci/math-learning-lab.cfm.
The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science offers the opportunity for students to graduate with departmental honors in mathematics and/or computer science. The requirements for departmental honors include a GPA and credit requirement, as well as the completion of a capstone project under supervision of a faculty member. It is recommended that any interested student should meet with the chair of the department or his/her adviser by the end of the sophomore year to discuss options for the senior project. Please, see the respective major programs for the corresponding listing of requirements.
Note to Students: The following listing represents those courses that are in the active rotation for each department, i.e., have been offered in the past five years. Some departments have additional courses offered more rarely but still available – to find the complete list of all official courses for a department, please use the “Course Catalogue Search” function in Self-Service Banner
