Courses are offered in Computer Science, Mathematics, and Mathematics Education. The curriculum provides fundamental courses as well as a variety of electives for those with special interests. Students may choose a major that prepares them for a career and/or graduate study in Computer Science, Mathematics or Mathematics Education. Students also can pursue a career in Actuarial Science or Computer Security with appropriate choices of elective courses. More details on programs offered by the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science are presented below and at http://www.uwsuper.edu/acaddept/mathcsci.
Mathematics major programs include Liberal Arts, Discrete Applied Mathematics (comprehensive, no minor required), and Secondary Education. Mathematics minor programs include Liberal Arts, Secondary Education and Elementary Education. All major programs permit choices of courses appropriate to individual interests, which should be made in consultation with a Mathematics and Computer Science faculty advisor.
Preparation for Graduate Study
Students who intend to do graduate work in mathematics should include both MATH 440 and 455 in their course selections when completing one of the major programs above. Many graduate schools require the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) Advanced Mathematics Test.
Students of Mathematics can find a rewarding career as an actuary in finance, insurance or any of a wide variety of industries requiring risk analysis and assessment. These courses are recommended: MATH 240, 241, 242, 310, 370, 371; ECON 250, 251; FIN 320, 420, 426; ACCT 200. In general, students should take a broad spectrum of courses in Accounting, Economics, Political Science, Finance and Business Administration as well as Mathematics and Computer Science. Interested students should contact Dr. Steven Rosenberg in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science.
Internship and Professional Practice
Students who major in programs offered by the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science have opportunities for paid work related to their field of study. Prerequisite: Junior standing and approval by the Mathematics and Computer Science faculty.
