Graduate Studies and Careers in Mathematics
Here are some links you can follow to find more information about graduate studies and careers in mathematics:
- The Mathematical Association of America is the leading professional society for academic mathematicians — both faculty and students.
- The American Mathematical Society concentrates on the work and publications of research mathematicians.
- As its name suggests, the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics represents the interests of mathematicians working in industry and academic mathematicians working in applied mathematics. SIAM publishes a brochure on careers in mathematics.
- Statistics, which is closely related to mathematics, has its own organization: the American Statistical Association.
- The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics is the world’s largest mathematics education organization, the “public voice of mathematics education.”
- The web site beanactuary.org guides students, begining in high school, on the path to becoming an actuary.
Guidelines for Majors
The Department provides the document Guidelines for Mathematics Majors.
There is a check list of courses that majors can use to monitor their progress.
Selecting Core Mathematics Courses
Depending on their majors, Saint Peter’s College students are required to take either 6 or 8 credits in mathematics to satisfy the core curriculum requirement. We provide a flow chart (Page 1 and Page 2) to help students and their advisors select the appropriate course.
Clubs & Organizations
Pi Mu Epsilon is a national mathematics honor society founded at Syracuse University and incorporated in 1914 under the laws of the State of New York. The chapter at Saint Peter’s University was chartered in 1968 and is called the New Jersey Epsilon Chapter.
