About the Mathematics Program at SSU
- The Department provides a wide array of undergraduate mathematics courses to support degree programs across the campus.
- In addition to close faculty-student working relations, the Department features an extensive tutoring program and use of technology in the curriculum.
- The degrees offered by the Department of Mathematical Sciences provide a broad intellectual foundation in undergraduate mathematics, foster your reasoning and problem-solving skills, and give you the opportunity to combine your interest in mathematics with preparation for a variety of career options.
Each of the Department's baccalaureate programs requires a senior research project which allows each student to work closely with a team of faculty to study a mathematical topic in depth. The senior research project is designed to be an integrative and capstone experience and results in the development of a senior paper and presentation.
Each of the programs is described here in more detail. If you are interested in a degree in mathematics, you are encouraged to contact the Department at (740) 351-3301 for additional information. The Mathematical Sciences faculty looks forward to showing you what Shawnee State has to offer.
