Welcome to the mathematics department website. The mathematics department offers a full range of courses, from non-credit ones for students whose mathematics preparation is insufficient for credit-level work to those designed for students in all degree programs at the college. The mathematics department also offers three degree programs, an associate degree program (AS) in Computer Science, a baccalaureate degree program (BS) in applied mathematics, and a baccalaureate degree program (BS) in mathematics education.
Mathematics is the language of science and technology. It is the language used to translate real world problems into a form in which a solution can be found. It is the goal of the department to provide all students with the mathematical foundation they need for their careers and for lifelong learning.
Employers value computer science, applied mathematics, and mathematics education graduates, not just for their specific technical skills, but for the broad analytic and problem-solving abilities that are developed in the study of these subjects. Both computer science and applied mathematics programs feature internship opportunities, where students can earn credits while working for an actual real world employer. There are also opportunities to work with faculty on research projects, attend seminars, present at conferences, and engage in social activities with other students with similar interests through the student run math club. Special scholarship programs are available for qualified students, sponsored by the National Science Foundation and other organizations.
We welcome you to investigate some of these opportunities by further exploring our website. You are also encouraged to consult with the members of our friendly and knowledgeable faculty, who will be happy to advise you and answer your questions.
