Mathematics majors are eligible for the
Henson School Scholarships and for additional scholarships.
Unlimited opportunities exist for mathematics
Our graduates are employed in an array of public and private sector
We have graduates working, for example, as a Lockheed Martin engineer;
a Beacon Technologies software developer; middle school, high school,
university faculty members; a National Security Agency mathematician;
IRS statistician; and as a marine scientist. Many graduates
complete graduate programs. For more information and resources

Mathematics majors are assisted in
career development in the following ways:
Research activities are a critical element of
educational experience for mathematics majors. Students are
to develop independence, problem-solving, and mathematical skills
undergraduate research. Our students present at the Henson School
Undergraduate Research Symposium, the National Conference on
Research, and regional meetings of the Mathematical Association of
Students may receive college credit for the research by
to register for course credit under MATH
or COSC 390 before starting the research.
Faculty members work closely with students to
them find suitable internships and cooperative learning experiences at
sites such as: NASA-Wallops Island, Beacon Technologies, Salisbury
University Institutional Research, and the Census Bureau. Before
an internship, students may apply to
for course credit under MATH or COSC 380.

CAMS helps businesses, industries and
agencies solve problems in strategic ways. Teams of students work
cooperatively with faculty on real-life projects, including a client
and a presentation. Clients have included Filtronic Comtek,
Sciences Corp. and Salisbury State University.
Majors learn to integrate the latest
into mathematical problem-solving in small classes where
learning is the focus.
We want to give our students the tools they
to succeed. The free walk-in tutoring program sponsored by the
is one such tool. The program also helps future teachers develop
skills and a pre-professional reputation.
