At Westminster, Mathematics majors develop close relationships with their faculty mentors through classes, undergraduate research, and extracurricular activities. The program provides the flexibility to apply mathematics to your passions through interdisciplinary work. The math program’s emphasis on developing skills in problem solving, coding, collaboration, and communication has led graduates to successful careers in a variety of fields, including data science, finance, actuarial science, and education.
The Computer Science and Computer Information Systems majors prepare our students in two fundamental ways. First, they are schooled in the fundamental computer science principles and underlying mathematics that form the foundation for all current and future advances in the field. Second, our program exposes students to technologies, software and programming paradigms relevant to the current state of the art in the field. With these combined approaches, our students succeed with today’s technologies and software and are uniquely positioned to adapt to future changes.
At Westminster, learning isn’t limited to the classroom. In each of our 50+ majors and pre-professional programs, your education will be enhanced by the purposeful combination of expert classroom instruction and hands-on learning opportunities. Internships, undergraduate research and studying abroad are just a few of the real experiences our students get that lead to real success after graduation.
Teachers, researchers, experts, mentors...our faculty members are all these things and more to their students. They trained in universities around the globe, but they chose to teach and conduct research at Westminster because of the focus on student development and success. Their dedication to mentoring and teaching is evident in our students’ success when it comes to graduation rates, post-graduation employment and graduate and professional school acceptance.
