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 (Computing Technology in Today's Society) before entering the certificate program.

Cybersecurity (Cert.) - The Cybersecurity Certificate will introduce students to the world of information security. Confidentiality, integrity and availability will be a key focus as those three topics are a benchmark for evaluation of an information systems security. Students will be introduced to a wide variety of security related topics including physical security, encryption, security planning, disaster response, and will gain hands-on experience through Virtual Labs.

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.
