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

Our faculty have expertise in actuarial science, algebra, combinatorics, cryptography, differential equations, geometry, graph theory, mathematics education and topology.

Our majors are actively involved in two student-run organizations, the Math Club and SAME (Student Association for Mathematics Educators). During the fall and spring semesters, the Math Club meets at noon on the first and third Wednesdays of each month, and SAME meets at noon on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month . All interested students are welcome!

The Department hosts the MCTM Elementary Mathematics Competition and the Math Field Day contest each spring.

Undergraduate Programs

Our Department offers undergraduate bachelor’s degrees in applied mathematics/statistics, actuarial science, and mathematics education.

Mathematics Learning Center

The Mathematics Learning Center is staffed with faculty, graduate assistants, and student workers. Appointments are not required. Only five students are allowed in MH 104 at any time. The Center’s hours are dedicated to specific math classes.

Mathematics Placement Information

All students must complete a mathematics course to receive a degree. Our mathematics placement process will help you find the best course for you and your program. Students are initially placed based on the ACT Math subscore or the SAT Math Score.


Our mathematics students put their knowledge to the test outside of the classroom. Southeast enters several competitions each semester. They range from individual to team events.
