Computer and Information Sciences Majors

Bachelor of Science in Computer Science – The Computer Science major (Science option) is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission (CAC) of the ABET, www.abet.org.  This major is designed for students who plan to apply their computing knowledge in scientific or engineering environments including software engineering. It is also designed for students who plan to seek advanced degrees in computer science or a related discipline.
Bachelor of Science in Computer Information Systems – The Information Systems major (Business option) is designed for students who plan to apply their computing knowledge in business environments as applications programmers and systems analysts. It is also designed for students who plan to seek advanced degrees in business administration, management, or management information systems.
Bachelor of Science in Information Technology - The Information Technology (IT) major is a program that will prepare students to use and support the appropriate use of computer technology to meet diverse needs of business, government, education, and other organizations.  IT graduates will possess the skills and knowledge to assume appropriate entry-level professional positions, and to grow into leadership positions or pursue graduate study.  The program offers cross-disciplinary concentrations for IT students and for students in other fields such as Health Informatics, Criminal Justice, Business, Education, Engineering Technology, and STEM areas.
Mathematics Majors

 
Bachelor of Science in Actuarial Sciences - This track is designed for the student that is interested in becoming an Actuary.  Success in this track requires passing actuarial science exams that are required for employment in the actuary field.
Bachelor of Science in Mathematical Sciences - This track is designed for the student who will work in industry or a national laboratory.  Advisors will work with students to create a curriculum for each individual student.  All electives MUST be approved by  your  advisor.
Bachelor of Science in Traditional/Pure Mathematics- This track is designed for the student that will go to graduate school to pursue a M.S. and/or Ph.D. in pure mathematics, applied mathematics, financial mathematics, or some other closely related area.  This track is not recommended for students that intend to work in industry.

Physics Majors

Bachelor of Science in Physics - This option prepares students for pursuing graduate degrees in physics, as well as for careers in the private technology sector. Students in this stream take 61 credit hours of physics courses, with related courses in mathematics, computer science and required humanities courses.
Bachelor of Science in Applied Physics - The applied physics option prepares students to pursue a more diversified career in many science-related areas such as computers, environment, management, government agencies, and research laboratories. In addition to 52 credit hours of physics courses with a strong emphasis on hands-on skills, applied physics students take courses in business and management, computer science and humanities to assist in their future careers.
