The Department of Mathematics at Southeast Missouri State University has been committed to helping students and assisting alumni since the 1890s. 

In choosing to study mathematics at Southeast you will learn from a dedicated group of caring faculty who will nurture your abilities and challenge you to succeed.

Our department offers undergraduate Baccaleaurate degrees in pure mathematics, applied mathematics/statistics, actuarial science, and mathematics education and a graduate Masters of Natural Science degree in mathematics.  Our faculty are all accomplished teachers and researchers with expertise in analysis, algebra, combinatorics, differential equations, geometry, mathematics education, statistics and topology.

The department is home to the Center for Statistical Analysis which provides statistical consulting services to other departments on campus and to the Cape Girardeau community and to the brand new John William Ueleke and Margaret Ritter Ueleke Mathematics Computer Labs. 

Our majors are actively involved in two student-run organizations, the Math Club which meets twice a month during Common Hour and SAME (Student Association for Mathematics Educators) which meets twice a month during Common Hour.  All interested students are welcome!
