Bachelor of Science Math & Computer Science

The BS in Math and Computer Science is a joint degree between the School of Computing in CDM and the Department of Mathematics in the College of Science and Health. It provides challenging opportunities to exceptional students with an interest in the highly theoretical nexus of math and computer science. Mathematics is a key element to the theory and practice of computer science and technology. Sample courses include artificial intelligence, computational mathematics, linear algebra, programming, and theory of computation. 

For international students: this is a STEM-designated program, which can qualify you to extend your post-graduation stay in the United States.

Degree Requirements


This program prepares students for graduate study in various areas of computer science research including theoretical computer science, graphics, data analysis, artificial intelligence, and computational methods, as well as in areas in applied mathematics such as numerical analysis or discrete mathematics.

It is also designed to prepare students to compete for the more theoretical complex jobs found in computer software development.
