(5-Year Program)

This program will allow students to complete a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics and a Master of Science in Computer Science in a five year format. In general, the program will allow students to acquire expertise in two related knowledge bases so that they will possess the capability to pursue careers managing technological applications and innovations across the two disciplines. Graduates would be prepared to pursue advanced graduate degrees in Mathematics, Computer Science, or other STEM related areas.

Students may apply for the program upon admission to Iona College. Students who complete CS 201  - CS 202  and MTH 231  - MTH 232  with a grade of B or better in each course will be admitted to the program. Since the material in these courses is fundamental to all the courses that are included in the program a strong performance in them is a good indicator that a student is prepared to be successful in the remainder of the program.

See Graduate Catalog for full course listing.
