While offering students an opportunity to study mathematics as part of a liberal arts education, the mathematics major can also serve as preparation for work in mathematically-based fields such as the computer sciences or statistics, for secondary teaching, for business, or for graduate study.
MTH 5ABC - Calculus I, II, III (4,4,4)
CIS 2 - Introduction to Computer Programming (3)
MTH 8 - Transition to Higher Math (3)
