The mathematics and computer technology major provides students with the opportunity to tailor a discipline in mathematics and computer science in accordance with three possible concentrations that are built on a core of computer science and mathematics courses. Students enrolled in the mathematics and computer technology major can choose from one of three concentrations.
Computer Science Concentration
Students in the computer science concentration will expand their knowledge in areas such as computer architecture and databases.
Students in the mathematics concentration will focus in areas such as mathematical analysis and abstract algebra.
Mathematics and Computer Technology Learning Applications Concentration
Students who select the mathematics and computer technology learning applications concentration are expected to pursue an elementary teacher licensure program and will take courses in the teaching of elementary mathematics and curriculum standards, as well as complete a student-teaching practicum.
The program core consists of computer science courses that include microcomputer applications, studio in computer graphics, computer animation, and hypermedia and mathematics courses such as calculus, discrete mathematics, geometry, and a mathematics seminar.
