About Computer Science

Muskingum University provides its students with a sound technical education that includes topics from a number of emerging areas, including web tool development, network and wireless communication, animated graphics, artificial life, and robotics. At the same time, the department faculty believe that a liberal arts institution should have a special mission that includes discussions of the effects of this technology within our society and around the world.

The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science has provided students with the background knowledge and course work to pursue a variety of interesting career building opportunities both during their time as students through internship programs and as alums in business, industry, education and graduate education.


The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science aspires to excellence in serving its students in an ever-evolving world.  We will adapt to changes within our disciplines to best meet expectations placed on our majors as they graduate and begin life beyond Muskingum and we will keep pace with changes in the sciences and other programs with mathematics and computer science content.
