Areas of Concentration

Applied Mathematics and Statistics: Actuarial Foundations

Applied Mathematics and Statistics: Actuarial Foundations

Through rigorous coursework in probability theory, financial mathematics, and risk assessment, students learn to analyze and manage financial risks for insurance companies and other institutions. They graduate prepared for actuarial certification and careers in risk management.
Applied Mathematics and Statistics: Business

Applied Mathematics and Statistics: Business

With a focus on business, students leverage mathematical and statistical tools to address real-world challenges in the corporate world. They learn to analyze financial data, develop predictive models for market trends, and optimize business processes, equipping them for roles in finance, consulting, and strategic decision-making.
Applied Mathematics and Statistics: STEM

Applied Mathematics and Statistics: STEM

Through specialized coursework in probability, regression analysis, and experimental design, students gain a comprehensive understanding of statistical methods and their applications. Graduates leverage their expertise in extracting meaningful insights from data and use evidence-based decision-making in fields such as engineering, finance, and data science.
Coming from a small town but spending much of my time in the city as a kid, I found it abhorrent that there could exist such schools that force their students to shed their identity and conform to the chaos of large classes. That is why I’m infinitely grateful for the model of learning that Florida Southern uses. It was this very model that allowed me to come to love and appreciate mathematics in a personalized, one-on-one setting.

Daniel Jelsovsky

Math is not a spectator sport. You learn to solve problems by solving problems, not by watching people solve problems. To think you can learn math by watching is as foolish as saying I can hit a baseball by watching Evan Longoria. I will help students think their way through advanced problems. This will stay with them long after any formula has faded from memory.
