Purpose: The St. Johnís University Libraries support teaching, study, and research for undergraduate students, masters students, and faculty associated with the Math and Computer Science Department of St. Johnís College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, the Department of Computer Science, Mathematics and Science of the College of Professional Studies, and the Department of Computer Information Systems and Decision Sciences of the Tobin School of Busines. The course schedule includes current offerings. The School Bulletin has detailed information about all courses.
Undergraduate Programs: Programs of study offered by the Math and Computer Science Department include the B.A. in Mathematics, B.A./M.A. in Mathematics, B.S. in Mathematics, and B.S. in Computer Science. Minors include Applied Statistics, Mathematics, Computer Science, and Information Science. Faculty areas of research include analysis, algebra, differential geometry, functional analysis, topology, computer science, and applied math. The Department seeks to prepare students for such careers in mathematics as teaching, actuarial science and financial analysis. There is also an Associates Degree in Computer Science.
As of January 2007, an M.S. in Computer Security is being planned.
