Mathematics and Computer Science

Computer Science: Major, Minor 
Mathematics: Major
Statistics: Minor 

In our increasingly technology-driven society, mathematics, computer science, and statistics are part of our daily public discourse.

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, computer science, and statistics 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, computer science, and statistics 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.
