Mathematics and Computer Science

In our increasingly technology-driven society, mathematics and computer science are part of our daily public discourse. In this context, the department works toward helping students become knowledgeable and sophisticated learners, able to think and work independently, and to work productively in concert with their peers. Through the mathematics and computer science curriculum at Holy Cross, students become active participants in the study of fundamental and dynamic areas of human endeavor.

The department's programs are informed by other disciplines and seek out ways that mathematics and computer science have an impact on the world at large. The department offers a major in mathematics or computer science, and a minor in computer science open to students majoring in any department, including mathematics. Both majors offer honors programs with opportunities for independent research.
