Computer Science-Mathematical Sciences (Combined Major)

The purpose of the combined program is to provide a thorough background in both allied disciplines and to inculcate a deeper understanding of their goals and methods. A student must complete 60 credits in the two disciplines:

  • 30 of these credits in Computer Science courses and
  • 30 of these credits in Mathematical Sciences courses.

Each student plans a program in consultation with a Computer Science and a Mathematical Sciences advisor. Students planning to attend graduate school in computer science or the mathematical sciences should consult with their respective advisors.
