Program Information/Mission:
A student planning to prepare for a career in computer science, mathematics teaching at the high school level or as a research technician will essentially earn a major in mathematics. Many mathematics majors choose to take considerable work (possibly even a second major) in an applied field such as chemistry, physics, economics, accounting, computer programming, etc. By studying in an applied area along with mathematics, students strengthen their employability, especially in industry or at a research facility. Many courses of study at Illinois Central College leading to four-year degrees require considerable mathematics. For example, the suggested courses of study for engineering, physics, and chemistry all include a minimum of three semesters of calculus. For students in accounting and business administration, a one-year sequence of mathematics is required.
