|Description||" Formal computer science arose as a branch of mathematical logic before the possibility of an actual computer was ever imagined. The classical aspects of both of these subjects are almost philosophical in flavor. The modern aspects are extremely practical; each of these disciplines has much of practical value to offer to other subjects and to the world at large.
The Mathematics and Computer Science Department at St. Joseph's University shapes its mission around both the classical and modern aspects of both of these disciplines. The curricula in both aim to impart four sorts of knowledge:
(1) cultural enrichment (as befits courses at a liberal arts institution, especially a Jesuit one);
(2) training in specific skills that inform the practical sides of these subjects;
(3) professional preparation for those students who will choose careers as mathematicians, statisticians, computer scientists, or as educators in these fields; and
(4) experience in research and in independent work at the undergraduate level. "
