Welcome to the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Elizabeth City State University!
As the chairperson, I am more than honored to serve in this position and address all current and prospective math & computer science majors regarding both our undergraduate and graduate programs. The Department offers undergraduate programs leading to Bachelor of Science degrees in both Mathematics and Computer Science. The Department also offers minors in scientific areas as well as Liberal Arts. The Department also offers a M.S. in Mathematics with concentrations in Mathematics Education, Applied Mathematics, and Remote Sensing. Our strong curriculum which emphasizes both theory and applications means our students are well prepared for a wide range of careers in industry, research, education and government agencies.
Students majoring in the Mathematical Sciences have numerous career opportunities open to them. An undergraduate degree in Mathematics or Computer Science establishes an excellent background for graduate studies in many areas such as Actuarial Science, Computer Science, Economics, Engineering, Mathematics, Operations Research, and Statistics. Those who are planning to receive a license to teach high school and/or middle school mathematics must have a minor in Secondary and/or Middle Grades Education.
The Departmental faculty members are well-qualified, have diverse research interests, and are dedicated to the success of students. It is recommended that prospective students contact the department as early as possible to discuss an appropriate program of study and to plan the sequencing of course requirements.
I hope your enjoy visiting our website. If you need further information about our programs or the Department please feel free to contact me. Thank you for visiting and Viking Pride!
