The Math and Computer Science Club plays an active role in promoting a sense of community among majors and faculty, and in disseminating information on career opportunities and curricular issues. The Club also sponsors trips to national and regional meetings of professional organizations so that students can see firsthand new developments in mathematics. In addition, the Club sponsors a Student Chapter of the Mathematical Association of America and of Pi Mu Epsilon, a mathematics honor society.

Students and faculty work together outside class preparing for the Mathematical Competition in Modeling. Several of our students have done very well in this world-wide competition.

Students often combine their classroom experience with a campus job by working in the Department's tutoring program or in the University's Computer Center.

The Salisbury University mathematics graduate emerges prepared to begin a career in the mathematical sciences or to pursue a graduate program. Private businesses and governmental agencies visit the campus each year to recruit mathematics majors. Areas with career opportunities include mathematical modeling, actuarial science, statistics, operations research, systems and applications programming, and teaching.
