Community Effort

We are a community of learners, educators, and scholars with diverse interests and backgrounds.  Through our educational, research, and outreach activities, we strive to help achieve the strategic missions of our department and college.



Welcome to Southeastern's Department of Mathematics.  We offer a broad range of classes in various mathematical disciplines and have many active research programs.

The Department of Mathematics offers a bachelor's degree in mathematics and a bachelor's degree in mathematics with a concentration in mathematics education.  We also oversee the instruction of mathematics service courses to all other degree programs on campus.

  • Math Lab features 200 computers and is staffed by tutors

  • Recent graduates hold jobs in fields such as banking, insurance and technology, and many pursue advanced degrees in mathematics, physics, computer science, engineering, and medical fields

  • Undergraduate degree program in mathematics with concentration in mathematics education prepares students to be effective and highly qualified teachers of high school mathematics

  • The department participates in an interdisciplinary master's degree program in Integrated Science and Technology


The mission of the Department of Mathematics is to provide an appropriate mathematical course of study for all students enrolled in Southeastern Louisiana University. In addition to contributing to the broad cultural background of the general education student, the Department of Mathematics offers a comprehensive degree program providing a solid background in many areas of Mathematics. When combined with the opportunities for undergraduate research, completion of the degree in Mathematics provides students with both computational skills and theoretical understanding necessary to make them ready for immediate employment in business, industry, and education or for continued study at the graduate level. Students completing the minor in Mathematics will have a valuable knowledge of mathematics providing them a broader skill set for use in future employment or study.


The Department of Mathematics frequently hosts interactive group competitions.  Check back often!
