The mathematics major prepares students for careers in industry, government, and education that require creative thinking and problem-solving skills. Students intending to pursue a career in teaching mathematics at the secondary level must minor in secondary education and choose either the bachelor of science-mathematics or the bachelor of arts-mathematics for the major.

Mathematics majors and minors are strongly encouraged to join the Math Society. The Math Society is a student organization open to any Salem State University student interested in mathematics. The society sponsors a variety of events in cooperation with the mathematics department. Students interested in joining are encouraged to contact any member of the mathematics department and to join the Math Society listserv.
