An interdepartmental major offered by the Department of Computer and Information Science and the Department of Mathematics.

The computational option of this program enables students to apply mathematical and computational skills to the physical, biological, social, and behavioral sciences. The theoretical option is designed for students interested in the more abstract parts of computer science and for those interested in college teaching and research.

All mathematics courses offered to satisfy the requirements for a major in computational mathematics must be completed with a grade of C- or higher. Unless otherwise specified in this bulletin, any mathematics courses used to satisfy a prerequisite for an advanced mathematics elective must be completed with a grade of C- or higher. All computer and information science prerequisites to computer and information science courses must be completed with a grade of C or higher.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Program requirements (49-58 credits)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Students should select option I or option II.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Option I: Computational.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
MATH 1201 [3.3] and MATH 1206 [3.4]. Transfer students may also need to take MATH 1211 - see math department chair.
All of the following: Mathematics 2201, 2001, 2101, 4201, 2206, 4701 and 3501.
All of the following: Computer and Information Science 1110 or 1180, 3110, 3120, 3130, 3220.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Program recommendations
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mathematics 4501 is recommended. It is recommended that students choose electives in departments that prepare them to apply computer science to a particular field of interest. Majors in computational mathematics may substitute Mathematics 2001 for Computer and Information Science 2210 as a prerequisite for Computer and Information Science courses.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Additional requirements for a B.S. degree
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Candidates for a B.S. degree with a major in computer science (including computational mathematics and multimedia computing) must complete at least 60 credits in science and mathematics; 24 of these 60 credits must be completed in advanced courses numbered 2000 and above in the Department of Computer and Information Science. For the B.S. degree in computational mathematics, these 24 credits must be in the Department of Computer and Information Science and/or the Department of Mathematics. These 24 credits must be completed at Brooklyn College with a grade of C or higher in each course. Specific course requirements for B.S. degrees in the department are described above. The following courses may be applied toward the 60 credits in science and mathematics:
A) All courses in the departments of biology, chemistry, computer and information science, earth and environmental sciences, mathematics, physics, and psychology.
B) Courses marked with a number sign (#) in the Department of Health and Nutrition Sciences.
C) Anthropology and Archaeology 2200, 3199, 3230, 3240, 3250, 3260, 3265, 3266, 3425, 3440, 3470 and 4665.
