Bachelor Of Science Degree In Computer Science (Mathematics Emphasis)
Bachelor Of Science Degree In Computer Science (Business Emphasis)
Bachelor Of Arts Degree In Mathematics
The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science offers programs of study leading to the Bachelor of Arts degree in Mathematics, the Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science with emphasis in mathematics, Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science with emphasis in business and offers graduate courses to support the Master of Education degree with concentration in mathematics. The Department also provides courses in support of the curriculums of other departments at the University and minor programs in mathematics and computer science. The minor programs are designed for those students interested in pursuing graduate study or the wide variety of careers in the fields of mathematics and computer science. Students in computer science may choose to concentrate in business or mathematics. To be admitted to the department as a major, the student must have a cumulative grade point average of 2.25 or higher.
The major in mathematics provides course work that leads to the Bachelor of Arts degree in mathematics. In addition to the general institutional requirements, the major in mathematics is required to complete 60 semester hours in major courses which include six (6) hours of foreign language and 15 semester hours of general electives.
The Bachelor of Science degree in computer science with mathematics emphasis is for those students who want to combine mathematics and computer science. In addition to the general institutional requirements, the major completes 60 semester hours in major courses which include 33 hours in computer science, 20 hours in mathematics courses, including Calculus II, and Calculus III, 6 semester hours in major electives and 1 hour in general electives.
The Bachelor of Science degree in computer science with business emphasis is for those students who want to combine computer science and business. In addition to the general institutional requirements, the major completes 60 semester hours in major courses, which include 39 hours in computer science and mathematics courses, 12 hours in business courses, 6 semester hours in major electives and 3 semester hours in general electives. The Bachelor of Science degree in computer science with business emphasis is a cooperative program between Albany State University and Albany Technical College that allows qualified students to earn 99 quarter hours at Albany Technical College and then transfer to Albany State University to complete the requirements for the Bachelor of Science degree with emphasis in business. Upon admission to Albany State University students may transfer up to 60 semester hours of credit to Albany State to satisfy Areas A, B, C, D, and E of the Core Curriculum.
All majors must complete a minimum of 126 semester hours. All majors and minors in the department must achieve a grade of "C" or better in all mathematics, science, and computer science and business courses. A cumulative grade point average of at least 2.25 is required for graduation.
