The Department’s main curriculum goal is to train our students to be problem solvers, critical thinkers, and life long learners. To achieve this goal, we offer a broad variety of courses serving the needs of all majors at SUNY Old Westbury.
For Liberal Art students we offer mathematics proficiency and computer literacy courses in which mathematics and information technology ideas, many of them quite applicable and intuitive, are studied to enable students to become educated citizens.
Many students in more quantitative majors, from Business to Physics, take a series of mathematics and computer science courses required by their respective departments. These courses are offered by the Mathematics & CIS department, and course content is tailored to fit these students’ specialties and backgrounds.
