PEAKS  Natural Sciences & Mathematics  Professional Studies & Enhancements 
The Mathematics–Computer Science major is designed to prepare students for a broad variety of careers and for graduate study. Work in computer science includes software development and design, research in solving problems in computing (including data storage, networking, retrieval, organization, validation, and so on), and research into new ways of using computing devices (computer vision, robotics, machine learning, accessibility studies, etc.). Computer science is one of the most rapidly expanding and changing fields of scientific inquiry. Preparation for work in this field is thus inherently interdisciplinary, requiring a strong mathematical background. Majors also complete coursework in effective communication. The problemsolving capabilities acquired in the Mathematics–Computer Science major are of wide utility in many fields of study and careers not directly connected to computer science. Computer Science majors gain familiarity with concepts and technologies that have become an integral part of virtually every profession. Just as organizational, interpersonal, and communication skills have become a requisite part of most successful employment, the capacity to understand, operate, and manipulate computational tools will soon be a professional necessity in all areas of industry and academia. The Mathematics–Computer Science major fulfills the Professional Studies PEAK as well as the Natural Sciences & Mathematics PEAK.
