The Mathematics and Computer Science Department offers a strong curriculum in pure mathematics, applied mathematics, and computer science, in a friendly and supportive environment. We invite you to appreciate, understand, and engage these creative disciplines.
The study of mathematics offers a unique and important way of interpreting the world around us, bringing accuracy and rigor to the quest for discovering patterns in observations both abstract and concrete. Computer science combines problem-solving skills with cutting-edge technology to develop automated solutions and build systems for individuals and societies in diverse applications.
We nurture mathematical, computational, and algorithmic points of view in students embarking on a liberal education, desiring skills for other endeavors, and pursuing contemporary ideas in mathematics and computer science.
The heart of our endeavor is excellence in teaching and learning. To that end, we value individual work with all students, encourage the development of existing and new courses and seminars, and promote participation in activities at local, regional, and national levels in mathematics and computer science.
Professional and community activity of faculty members is critical to support this mission, and we work to extend strengths in research, exposition, and professional leadership while maintaining a tradition of service to the college community and beyond.
