Department of Mathematics and Computer Science | Franciscan University of Steubenville
  • The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science contributes to the liberal education of the students at the University by providing college-level instruction in mathematics, one of the classic liberal arts, and in computer science, a relatively new but rapidly growing field of fundamental importance.

    In addition to its own major and minor programs of study, the Department instructs students who are pursuing different courses of study and recognizes that the instruction must be adapt- ed as much as possible to the needs of these students. For the arts and science students, the objective of the department is to train students in the basic and necessary skills of mathematics that will be required in nontechnical pursuits and to bring out the cultural and applied values of mathematics. In addition, in the instruction of engineering and science students for whom mathematics is a tool subject, the objectives of the department are twofold: (1) to develop skill and accuracy in mathematical operations and (2) to familiarize students with the methods of mathematical analysis. Finally for those students who show special aptitude for mathematics, the department seeks to prepare them for advanced work in this field.
