The Mathematics major is a well-respected program that is known for its almost unlimited versatility. This is especially important in today’s society where most people change careers several times throughout their lives. Math-specific jobs are consistently ranked in the top 10 professions in terms of job satisfaction; not only do they pay well, but they are fun jobs with good security and growth potential.

Program Outcomes

Over 40% of Southeastern’s math graduates go on to graduate school in math, statistics, or actuarial science in schools including OSU, OU, Texas, Texas A&M, and the University of Florida. Many of Southeastern’s math graduates have become university professors and administrators, lawyers, accountants, pharmacists, computer scientists, teachers, principals, superintendents, statisticians, engineers, accountants, and of course, mathematicians.
