Engage in interdisciplinary learning with faculty across the college. This concentration will prepare you for some of today’s most innovative, challenging, and lucrative careers in the sciences.
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.
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.
At Florida Southern, you’re guaranteed an internship so you can see firsthand what it means to use math for a living.
Due to the growing relevance of technology, big data, and economic efficiency needed by all organizations, expert numerical analysts are increasingly in demand. Because of their proper training and education, our majors find themselves well positioned to pursue lucrative careers in science based fields.
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.
Our graduates are accepted into the nation’s top engineering masters programs.
At Florida Southern, our low student-faculty ratio allows students opportunity for an independent study with any faculty on any topic.

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...

In addition to first-year learning communities, 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.
Supplement your classroom learning with an internship or experiential learning activity. Our majors intern in various industries and gain valuable real-world experience.
In MAT 3350 Differential Equations, you will study solutions and systems of ordinary differential equations. Topics in this course include existence and uniqueness theorems, stability of autonomous systems, discrete dynamical systems, and chaos.
Schedule a campus tour or take our video tour of one of the nation’s most beautiful campuses. Participate in our daily online Admission Info Session or a MocTalk webinar to learn more about Florida Southern.
At the end of the junior year, all Florida Southern College students are eligible to be considered for early admission into the MS in I/O Psychology, MAT in Transformational Curriculum and Instruction, and MBA programs. (Prerequisites may apply.)
I have found that teaching is more than just presenting lectures to students. It is also building rapport with students and demonstrating a belief in their ability to succeed. I believe in teaching students to develop their computational and analytic skills. The students need to be actively engaged in the learning process.
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.

Students: Anthony Stefan, Zachary Fralish, Bernard Tyson III
Accepted for publication in Rose-Hulman Undergraduate Math Journal (Aug, 2019)
The mathematics department sponsors a chapter of Kappa Mu Epsilon, a mathematics honor society, and 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.
