Accordingly, graduates of the Math/Physics/Computer Science department will
Mathematics is the unique language of all physical and social sciences. Students who pursue the study of mathematics are trained to solve problems and to communicate such solutions effectively. This gives the foundation for further professional study in many fields as well as for employment in business and industry.
Physics is the study of the physical universe. In physics, students learn to solve theoretical and practical problems using fundamental principles and to effectively communicate those solutions. This study provides preparation for graduate studies in engineering and other physical sciences and professional schools, as well as preparation for positions in industry.
A student who follows the Computer Science course of study is prepared for graduate studies as well as for positions in software design, systems analysis, and computer systems management. The Information Systems option is less theoretical than the computer science major. Many Information System majors will choose to study also in a business field to strengthen their skills and to meet personal goals. The interdisciplinary Management Information Systems degree is especially tailored to those students.
Computational Sciences is an interdisciplinary major combining mathematics, computer science and natural sciences to study the universe through modeling and simulation. It represents a way of doing science that is complementary to theory and experiment. Students completing this major will be highly marketable to graduate schools, industry and research laboratories.
