Welcome to Mathematics & Computer Science

Mathematics and computer science are disciplines central to both the liberal arts curriculum and to research endeavors in the natural and social sciences. The combined department at Emory offers educational programs and supports research activities that exploit the interrelations among mathematics, computer science, and the physical and life sciences, and that advance traditional areas of scholarship within each discipline.

The department offers a BA and a BS in both mathematics and computer science, a BS in applied mathematics as well as joint programs in mathematics/computer science, mathematics/economics, and mathematics/political science. The department also offers work leading to the Master of Arts (MA), Master of Science (MS), and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degrees in Mathematics and Computer Science.

A New 4-hour Math 111L -- Calculus I with Lab in Fall 2015

We are offering a new version of first semester calculus in Fall 2015 -- Math 111 L -- Calculus I with Lab. This is a 4-credit hour course that will include 3 50-minute lectures and a 50-minute recitation each week. The syllabus will be comprised of the same topics as standard Math 111 with expanded time for more examples, applications, and practice through group and individual work in the labs. There will be more frequent assessment of, and support for, progress using a web-based set of exercises and quizzes. Interested students should contact the Math & CS Department for more information on this pilot offering of 4-credit hour Calculus I.
