Welcome to the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Kennesaw State University. If you are thinking about earning a degree that will provide you with a wide array of possibilities for a career in mathematics-related fields, then you have come to the right place. We offer programs of undergraduate study leading to the degrees of Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and Bachelor of Science in Mathematics Education. We also offer a program of graduate study leading to the Master of Science in Applied Statistics and, in cooperation with the Bagwell College of Education, a program leading to the Master of Arts in Teaching with mathematics concentration. In addition to these undergraduate and graduate degree programs, the department offers formal minors in both Applied Mathematics and Applied Statistics and Data Analysis. Our graduates have had excellent success in recent years in gaining employment and launching careers as business and industry analysts and as secondary school educators. Many recent graduates have gone on to pursue advanced graduates degrees in mathematics and statistics.

As a student in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, you will have many opportunities for involvement in activities with your professors and your peers. We have a weekly seminar called “Math Talks” which is aimed at a student audience and which features talks on a variety of interesting mathematical topics. Our Kennesaw Women in Mathematics (KWIM) student organization hosts events throughout the year that bring students and faculty together for fun learning experiences outside of the classroom. Many of our faculty members are engaged in research that presents opportunities for student-faculty research projects for those of our students who choose to extend their educational experience beyond the basic curriculum of study. The department prides itself as a center of scholarly culture at KSU and our students are a central part of this culture.

I hope that you will take some time to browse through our website to learn more about our programs and to get a sense of the many exciting activities and events that are taking place in the department on a regular basis.
