Mathematical and Computational Science, "MCS", has been Stanford's applied math undergraduate major since the 1970's. During that time the computer has revolutionized the practice and the importance of mathematical thinking in the world of science and commerce.
Every year our students go on to a variety of positions in industry and academia. Our curriculum covers key courses in computer science, operations research, mathematics, statistics and probability, while still leaving room for individualized programs of study.
Our program coordinator is available for questions about our major.
