The Springfield College mathematics and computer technology major provides students with core knowledge in math, as well as a broad range of computer skills that are highly valued in today’s job market. 

Students have the freedom to choose from one of three concentrations, including computer science, which provides knowledge of computer architecture and databases; mathematics, which focuses on areas such as mathematical analysis and abstract algebra; or learning applications, our most popular track, which prepares students to teach special education, as well as elementary or middle school math.

Our curriculum includes classes in microcomputer applications, computer graphics, computer animation, hypermedia, and discrete mathematics, all of which teach crucial quantitative and critical-thinking skills valued by employers. Students will learn in computer labs with math-based software, and have an opportunity to pursue practicum and internships, giving them the chance to learn by doing. 

Our students will graduate ready to become teachers, business analysts, programmers, research analysts, account executives, or to pursue other math or computer-related careers.
