Mathematics: Major

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 majors in mathematics and computer science.  Both majors offer honors programs with opportunities for independent research. The department also offers minors in computer science and in statistics.  The computer science minor is open to students in any major, including mathematics. The statistics minor is open to students in any major, including mathematics or computer science.
