Mathematics, Computer Science and Physics

  • The Department of Mathematics, Computer Science and Physics offers majors in Mathematics, Integrated Mathematics (formerly Mathematics Education) and Computer Science and minors in Mathematics, Computer Science, and Physics. Through these programs, the department's primary goal is to develop the aptitudes and analytical skills required for use and understanding of the discipline using:

    • Teacher guided discovery and learning;
    • Application-oriented motivation and illustration
    • Interplay between applications, problem-solving, and theory

    First courses are designed to appeal to a broad audience of university students.
    The department provides a curriculum in mathematics, computer science, and physics

    • as a cultural study for all liberal arts students
    • as a basic tool for the scientist
    • as a preparation for employment
    • for graduate study
    • for teaching.

    Capital was one of the first undergraduate institutions to offer a program in Computational Science, an interdisciplinary program in which Mathematics, Computing, and Science merge.  Because of the nature of the program, several of our students choose to add this minor to their curriculum.  For more information about the program, please visit the Computational Studies page.
