The Computational Mathematics degree option at Missouri Southern State University results in a double major in computer information science (CIS) and mathematics. Through courses in CIS and mathematics, the program develops your expertise in applied mathematics and the theoretical foundations of computer science.
The curriculum includes math courses such as calculus and analytic geometry as well as CIS courses such as programming and database management. Supporting courses in chemistry and physics are also required.
Computational mathematics involves the use of math and computers to solve problems and predict outcomes. A degree in computational mathematics from MSSU may be useful to you in a wide range of areas including science, engineering, government, health care, business and information technology.
