The Department of Mathematics offers a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree with either a general program of study or one of three different concentrations: applied mathematics, secondary education certification, and statistics. The Secondary Education Certification Concentration includes the requirements necessary for official certification for teaching mathematics at the secondary level.
The latest technology is increasingly brought into the classroom to teach mathematics in a modern fashion. Faculty advisors work closely with students to help them prepare for careers in the mathematical sciences. We invite interested students to examine the department's website at www.ship.edu/math.
