# CIS Mathematics

Current CECS undergraduate students majoring in Computer and Information Science (CIS), Cybersecurity and Information Assurance (CIA), or Software Engineering (SE) may pursue a concurrent Bachelor of Science degree in CIS Mathematics. This makes it possible for CECS students to earn two degrees at the same time: a principal Bachelor of Science degree in CIS, CIA, or in SE and a separate concurrent Bachelor of Science degree in CIS Mathematics. Both degrees must be earned at the same time. The courses for the concurrent Bachelor of Science degree in CIS Mathematics cannot be used as elective credits for the principal degree, but must be taken in addition to the 120-123 credits required for the Bachelor of Science degree in CIS, the Bachelor of Science degree in CIA, or the Bachelor of Science degree in SE.

The educational objectives of the concurrent Bachelor of Science program in CIS Mathematics are to prepare graduates to:

1. Be able to develop innovative mathematical solutions to complex computational problems.
2. Engage in continuous learning to advance their professional careers.
