Undergraduate Degree Program
The undergraduate degree program in mathematics and physics with a concentration in mathematics from the Department of Mathematics, Physics and SMED at Southern University has been developed to prepare students in a wide variety of areas of mathematics. In addition to servicing students from other disciplines like computer science, physics, engineering, and biology, the department offers intermediate and advanced courses to prepare students with a sound foundation to enter careers that make extensive use of mathematics. Also, the mathematics program provides specialized training for high school and middle school teachers.
For details, contact the department or contact Dr. D. L. Clark at teachlearners@yahoo.com .
Requirements for Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Mathematics and Physics with a concentration in Mathematics
A student seeking to obtain a B.S. degree in Mathematics and Physics with a concentration in Mathematics from the Department of Mathematics, Physics and SMED must complete a minimum of 128 semester hours with a grade of "C" or better in all mathematics courses. These hours must include fortythree (43) hours in mathematics in courses numbered above MATH 200. It is strongly recommended that a mathematics major take more than the minimum 43 hours required, particularly if the student intends to attend graduate school in Mathematics. All majors are REQUIRED to secure a certified 'Curriculum Balance Sheet' from the main office in , 344 T. T. Allain, or the Mathematics Major Advisor/Coordinator, Dr. D. L. Clark in 304B, T.T. Allain (email: teachlearners@yahoo.com).
The required 43 hours for majors in Mathematics must include:
