The purpose of the mathematics curriculum is essentially twofold: to provide a necessary
aspect of a liberal arts education and to supply the necessary mathematics requirements
for continued study in a Baccalaureate program and/or a career in such fields as mathematics,
science, engineering, economics, accounting, the behavioral sciences, and such professions.
Facilities on campus include Computer Learning Center (B 225), Math Center (B 130),
the Math Success Center (B 116), and Anxiety Center (B 126).
The following curricula are offered by this Department:
Computer Science (A.S.) - This program leads to the Associate in Science (A.S.) degree and is designed for
those who intend to transfer to a baccalaureate program oriented in the design of
hardware and software of computer systems. The program stresses computer, mathematics,
and science courses which are appropriate for transfer to a baccalaureate program.
Computer Information Systems - Microcomputer (Cert.) - The Computer Information Systems - Microcomputer Certificate Program has been designed
to provide training in computer skills to meet the needs of students to adapt and
succeed in the rapid growth and application of new and emerging computer technologies.
The program includes a wide range of courses in computer areas such as networking,
programming, and applications in order to provide training to develop marketable skills
or an opportunity for college graduates to upgrade their computer skills or prepare
for a career change. Students without any computer experience should complete CMP
100, Computer Literacy before entering the certificate program.
Information Technology (A.A.S.) This program leads to the Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree and is designed
for those who intend to seek immediate employment in Information Technology. The
program includes foundation in general education courses (for example, social sciences,
humanities, and electives) plus the business and mathematics courses necessary to
augment the extensive computer courses. By judicious use of electives along with active
advisement from departmental faculty, students can tailor the degree program to meet
their individual needs and industry requirements for a particular area of Information
Technology. Topics included for study are object-oriented programming, web programming,
relational database management and development, Visual Basic .NET programming, and
Windows Server and Linux Administration. Some students transfer to baccalaureate degree
programs in I.T. or related areas.
Liberal Arts & Science - Mathematics (A.S.) - This program is designed for students who intend to transfer to a baccalaureate
program in mathematics, mathematics education (secondary), or a related applied field.
Graduates of the program should be able to complete the baccalaureate degree in two
years of additional full-time study. The program includes liberal arts courses to
provide a broadbased general education, plus computer science and science courses
to augment the extensive mathematics component. The mathematics core develops knowledge
in three basic areas of mathematics learning: proof and theory, algorithms, and applications.
The computer component develops important ancillary skills.
Logistics & Transportation Management (A.A.S.) - This is a program which develops professionals for one of the fastest growing areas
of employment: the movement of goods and people from place to place with maximum efficiency.
This program focuses on core courses in logistics management and transportation plus
dynamic electives in the field. The curriculum also features basic studies in English,
science, the humanities, and other disciplines which provide a diverse and sound background
in the liberal arts. Individual concepts in Logistics and Transportation Management
are studied in depth, as is their interrelation to industrial and business operations.
This degree program leads to an Associate in Applied Science. Most courses are transferable
to four-year institutions.
