The Department of Mathematics at Mississippi College is home to a dynamic intellectual culture and an energetic learning environment.
Curiosity thrives here — students participate in competitions at annual mathematics conferences, learn from presentations by regional mathematics professionals, and lead an active Math Club that’s associated with the Mathematics Association of America. Even after they graduate, former students remain involved with the department; the Epsilon-Delta Society is a group of mathematics alumni and friends who support MC’s Department of Mathematics and promote our mission.
Math students can take advantage of exciting study abroad programs. Spend a summer, single semester or entire year in Spain, Costa Rica, France, Brazil, China, Japan, Austria, or Germany. While you’re there, you can take classes for credit that are taught by native and fluent speakers, and expand your cultural horizons while working toward your degree in math.
Students who are working toward secondary education licensure will teach at middle schools and high schools. With more varied experience, our graduates are well-prepared and highly competitive for available positions in the classroom. And because the degree is structured as a mathematics degree, graduates are desirable job candidates in other fields as well.
Unlimited access to our mathematical computing facilities makes it easier for students to learn on their own schedules. The Mathematics Tutoring Center supports students as they develop their skills. And annual mathematics competitions give students a chance to show off!
Math teachers-in-training get field experience in classrooms throughout Rankin, Hinds, and Madison counties. Math students can also gain professional experience through internships; our students have interned at Waterways Experiment Station and the Department of Environmental Quality.
Participate in Pi Mu Epsilon, an honor society for mathematics, and help promote mathematics on campus while supporting the scholarly development of your fellow members.
Take part in our active, student-led Math Club, a student chapter of the Mathematical Association of America.
The mathematics curriculum focuses on knowledge acquisition and skill building in the various disciplines of mathematics. Some students may choose to pursue secondary education licensure and become math teachers at the junior high and high school level. Others anticipate graduate study in mathematics, aimed toward research or teaching careers. The mathematics curriculum also forms a strong foundation for careers in technical fields.
MC’s Mathematics alumni continue to pursue excellence in their careers throughout the world.
