Center for Data, Mathematical, and Computational Sciences

Ramapo College’s Center for Data, Mathematical, and Computational Sciences (CDMC) is a collaboration between our Data Science, Computer Science, and Mathematics departments. CDMC primarily supports Ramapo College’s three Master of Science degrees in tech – Applied Mathematics, Computer Science, and Data Science.

The mission of the Center is to:

  • Promote a modern image of liberal arts, where quantitative skills and digital literacy are recognized as critical to all disciplines.
  • Support a tech community at Ramapo College by strengthening interdisciplinary and outside partnerships.
  • Develop undergraduate and graduate students skilled at applying technical concepts to real-world problems.

To achieve these goals, the Center

  • sponsors a lecture series,
  • coordinates experiential learning opportunities for students, and
  • houses computing lab space for students and faculty.

5 year B.S. to M.S. Option (4+1)

A key feature of our MS programs is the opportunities for students to complete their BS and MS degrees in just 5 total years at Ramapo, through our 4+1 pathways. Students majoring in Computer Science, Data Science, Mathematics, and Bioinformatics as undergraduates can enroll in any of our MS degree pathways – allowing them to complete graduate courses as seniors, and earn their Master’s degree in the following year.
