Welcome to the Mathematics Department
The faculty in our Department of Mathematics share the same enthusiasm for the discipline as revealed in a recent Wall Street Journal article (April 10, 2012), where the careers of mathematician and actuary were once again ranked in the top 10 out of 200 rated professions. The attributes considered include work conditions, pay, and growth potential. So, you ask "How do I become a mathematician?" Here at AASU you start by declaring mathematics as your major, meaning you have the opportunity to take ten or more advanced level mathematics courses from us. The courses range from Differential Equations to Number Theory with choices being somewhat determined by which track you choose: Pure Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, or Mathematics Education (leading to certification credentials for teaching in grades 6-12). Our faculty are here to prepare you for graduate school, for a job in industry (perhaps as an actuary or a statistician) or to teach in a Georgia high school. Even if you choose not to be a mathematics major, you will probably sit for an introductory course such as College Algebra or Quantitative Reasoning. In any case, you will find excellent, caring, engaging professors with a great wealth of knowledge and exciting, challenging topics to investigate.
Declare your mathematics major on S.H.I.P. now!
