Department of Mathematics Programs

Mathematics plays a central role in many fields, from science to computer programming, from finance to economics. It is a critical component in an extensive spectrum of fields. Southern's mathematics certification program is nationally recognized by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education. Students have the opportunity to supplement their small, close-knit classes with participation in the Math Club, weekly problem-solving seminars, trips to conferences, national and international competitions, and in the GeoGebra Institute of Southern.

1比1现金棋牌跑得快苹果The Applied Statistics Graduate Certificate is designed for individuals who wish to augment or begin studies in applied statistics. Students are trained in the collection, organization, analysis, interpretation, and presentation of numerical data. By enrolling in the certificate program, students build competency in the field of applied statistics that is beneficial to a wide range of careers because it improves individuals' data analytic skills.


We prepare you for a promising career in business or industry and work in dozens of fields, from bio-technology to finance to business analytics.

Data science can be defined as gathering insight and information out of data. It is the science of everything associated with data: creation of algorithms, software, tools, and techniques, mathematical/statistical theory and practice of analysis, theory and practice of visualization and presentation, and data engineering.

In Southern’s Bachelor of Science in Data Science program, you’ll begin learning data science during your first and second semesters. These classes introduce you to Python programming and the fundamentals of data science. You’ll complete upper-level coursework covering a variety of topics from computer science and mathematics/statistics including data mining, machine learning, web and database development, linear algebra, Bayesian analysis and decision making, time series analysis, and non-parametric statistics.

Graduates are skilled in identifying and assessing organizational needs for data science, acquiring data, and implementing data science solutions based on knowledge of related models. For 2019, LinkedIn identified data scientist as the most promising job in the U.S., with a median base salary of $130,000 and a 56 percent increase in job openings in the last year.
