Find meaning in the world around you and the numbers that explain it 

The Department of Mathematics, Science and Technology in the College of Arts & Sciences designs and delivers undergraduate mathematics, computer science, statistics, physics, biology, and environmental science and chemistry courses required by all three colleges. The department’s dedicated faculty members have wide-ranging experience not just in education but also in professional applications in the areas they teach. Additionally, the department administers the skills assessment that assesses the mathematics competency of incoming students to ensure their success in Mathematics, Science and Technology education coursework.

In addition to three minors, the department offers the bachelor's degree in Interdisciplinary Studies, which can be taken completely online. This flexible degree, designed in response to global corporate leaders, nurtures critical thinkers who understand the connections between science, technology and humanity. Depending upon their choices, graduates can prepare for careers in aviation, aerospace, international business, communication or other related professions.

The degree is also designed to accept transfer credits for students who have attended multiple colleges/universities. This offers students a unique opportunity to design a curriculum that serves their needs and aspirations. Furthermore, via the Air University – Associate to Baccalaureate Cooperative (AU-ABC) Category 1 agreement, all CCAF graduates can attain their Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies degree by taking no more than 60 semester hours of additional coursework through Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.

In the Minor in Applied Data Science, students will develop skills in using programming packages to analyze and visualize large-scale data. The curriculum is also designed to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of both supervised and unsupervised machine learning algorithms.

The Minor in Airport Baggage Handling Systems Implementation provides students with supplemental knowledge and tools required to be knowledgeable in baggage handling system design and implementation. The target audience for this minor will be students who are currently working in this field and/or aspire to be part of the airport industry. The objective is to understand the lifecycle of implementation of baggage handling systems and its relation to the overall airport system. 

The Environmental Science Minor includes the topics of Earth systems, biological diversity, world resources (water, food, energy), global climate change, urban planning and sustainable development. This minor meets a growing interest of students and employers in environmental responsibility and sustainability.

The Mathematics Minor includes a multitude of topics involving limits, derivatives, integrals, multivariable calculus, first and second order differential equations, Laplace transforms and matrix methods of solutions. The minor supports a Mathematics, Science and Technology emphasis highly desired by the aeronautics and technical industries.

The minor in Military Studies is designed for U.S. Army, Coast Guard, Marines and Navy students who have earned 15 credit hours of Joint Service Transcripted American Council of Education upper-level recommended credit and are pursuing a B.S. in Interdisciplinary Studies degree. Students will need to take six additional hours of upper-level credit in non-duplicating ASCI or MGMT courses to complete this minor.
