Math majors study areas such as finance, math education, statistics and actuarial science. Whether you want to work for NASA, teach high school math or prepare for the actuarial exam, the mathematics concentration at LSUS will prepare you to take the next step in your education and career.
Our math students are actively involved in research projects with faculty. A recent project, funded by the Biomedical Research Foundation, involved working with a local doctor and using individual control charts to determine a statistically significant change in patients’ conditions. Another faculty-student research project – called “Square Products of Punctured Sequences of Factorials” – appeared both as a conference publication as well as an article in the Gazette of the Australian Mathematical Society.
Faculty-sponsored activities include community-interest projects, math contests and travel to conferences. We also look for opportunities for students to get involved in internships with local businesses in the Shreveport community.
