Applied Mathematics and Statistics


Due to the growing relevance of technology, big data, and economic efficiency, expert numerical analysts are increasingly in demand.

While obtaining a degree in Applied Mathematics you will become a master of analysis and problem-solving, honing your quantitative skills. You can go beyond classroom learning and gain valuable experience through research opportunities and guaranteed internships.

Top Reasons

Collaborative Research

Our mathematics instructors specialize in a broad range of areas and topics. You can go beyond classroom learning and engage in research with faculty. Develop your professional credentials by presenting your collaborative research findings at regional, national and international conferences.

Learning Community

All of our first-year students begin by developing a camaraderie with other math majors through their learning communities. Learning communities are designed to help students persist in their studies and are focused on problem-based, integrative, and collaborative learning.

Modern Computer Laboratories

We have up-to-date computer laboratories that enable students to learn and practice skills required for the pursuit of a modern liberal arts education within our technologically oriented society.

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...

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.

Participating in a differential Equations Modeling Challenge

The challenge is comprised of students in teams of three choosing a problem to model. Each team has a few weeks to develop a model and analyze it. At the end of the time, all the teams present their solutions for other teams to see. This type of event is a great way to meet students from other schools, and to see how other students thought about the same problem. FSC has been participating in SCUDEM since 2019. The teams that completed the challenge in 2019 and in 2020 both published their model summaries as experiential articles.

  • “Using Differential Equations to Model Predator-Prey Relations as Part of SCUDEM Modeling Challenge”

    Students: Nathan Hallmark, Zachary Fralish, Jonathan Marshal

    Accepted for publication in the Int. Electronic Journal of Math. Education (Jan., 2021)

  • “Using Differential Equations to Model Predator-Prey Relations as Part of SCUDEM Modeling Challenge”

    Students: Anthony Stefan, Zachary Fralish, Bernard Tyson III

    Accepted for publication in Rose-Hulman Undergraduate Math Journal (Aug, 2019)

It all adds up!

In MAT 4442 Probability and Statistics, you’ll study concepts like random variables, discrete and continuous distributions, sampling estimation, and confidence intervals.

Clubs And More

The mathematics department has the Math Club, a mathematical interest club.

The math club at FSC aims to host several events each semester for majors and students interested in math can hang out and study together. Some of the activities the math club has hosted are a final review with pizza, coffee and donuts at the beginning of the semester, and game night and ice cream social.
