The Department of Mathematics and Computer Information Science offers two mathematics baccalaureate degree programs: B.S. in Mathematics (with a choice of two concentrations: Pure and Applied), and B.S.E. Mathematics (secondary education). The B.S. program in mathematics is designed to prepare students for a wide range of careers in mathematics outside of education, or for graduate school in mathematics. The B.S.E. in Mathematics program prepares students to become certified teachers of mathematics at the secondary school level. (See The Teacher Education Certification Section in the University Policies section of this catalog, for further details regarding admission to teacher certification candidacy and Pennsylvania certification requirements.) There is also a minor in mathematics and a minor in statistics.
