Your Future in Mathematics

At Charleston Southern, the emphasis in mathematics is actively doing mathematics rather than passively watching mathematics. Classes for mathematics majors are typically small (<20), and the courses focus on developing conceptualization and analytics through processes. The coursework for mathematics begins with Calculus I and includes solid theoretical and applied preparation in each area of traditional undergraduate mathematical study. Our goal is to provide you with the necessary skills for a successful career in your chosen field, while also providing you with a solid foundation for the continued study of mathematics or computer science at the postbaccalaureate level.

CSU is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges.
