|Description||"The St. Olaf Department of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science houses three programs, described briefly below. Click the links for further information and details.
Students arrange majors in mathematics by individual contracts that include both course work and independent mathematical activity. Contracts normally include seven courses beyond linear algebra, balanced to represent analytic, axiomatic, and applied mathematics. Independent activities include tutoring, attending colloquia, grading papers, computer consulting, internships, and undergraduate research.
This concentration enables students to pursue statistics either as a primary interest or as a supplement to some other major. The statistics concentration - including course work in both theoretical and applied statistics - may be attached to any major. Typically, about 12-15 students complete a statistics concentration each year.
A computer science major was begun recently; the first graduates completed the program in 2005. (A computer science concentration was offered for many years previously.)"
