The Department of Mathematicas and Computer Science
About Us

The faculty of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science offer students outstanding academic programs at both the undergraduate and graduate level. The Department provides a wide array of foundational and specialized courses that allow students to meet various degree requirements.  Advanced courses prepare students for entry into professions that rely on mathematics and computing.  The Master of Science in Forensic Computing , the first in the country, is a unique course of study that takes full advantage of the depth of John Jay’s graduate faculty and curricula both in criminal justice and computer science. The Department offers the courses leading to the Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Information Security. This newly revised computer major provides a solid foundation in computer science while focusing on cyber and information security. To complement other majors offered by the College, the Department offers minors in Mathematics and Computer Science. Faculty research activities in security, privacy and networking have attracted external funding form agencies such as NSF, NASA and NIJ.  Faculty members regularly mentor doctoral students at the Graduate Center of CUNY.  The Department is home to the John Jay's Center for Cyber Crime Studies, which promotes the research and  information sharing needed to understand and deter this fast growing and increasingly costly form of crime.
