Interested in a challenge? Want some skills that will prepare you for both a job and further study? Our undergraduate research program provides stimulating mathematical experiences for ambitious undergraduates. Students have presented the results of their work to student and faculty groups throughout the Southeast; some have published their work in national and international journals. It is not unusual to develop a project into an undergraduate or graduate thesis.
