In a world driven by technology, there is an increasing demand for knowledgeable professionals in mathematics and computer science. Students in Rivier’s programs learn much more than the theory and application of computing and quantitative research; they develop a broad understanding of the social and cultural significance of mathematics and computers in our society. Rivier’s computer science programs are fast-paced and flexible enough to change with new developments in the field, while our mathematics programs allow students to tailor their studies to their individual interests and career goals.
On the undergraduate level, mathematics and mathematics education majors can expect to develop skills in problem solving, critical reasoning, analysis, and professional practice. Our programs prepare you for success in graduate school, teaching, or career positions in industry and business.
Rivier’s graduate students in computer science work as data and systems analysts, programmers, software developers, quality assurance professionals, network administrators, integrated systems designers, information technology managers, and more. Our programs successfully combine theory with practical experience, giving our graduates an edge in meeting the demands of the high-tech workplace. Classes are offered on campus and online, so students can choose the option that works best for them.
