BS in Mathematics
“As an Operations Research Analyst for the United States Air Force, my mathematics education at The Citadel is essential to performing my job well. The rigor of the material coupled with the excellent instruction and individual tutoring made possible by small class sizes and a dedicated faculty characterized my mathematics education. I’ve had the privilege to work within various parts of the Air Force and even support the Combined Joint Task Force - Operation Inherent Resolve overseas analyzing the campaign against ISIS. My education gave me something more than a mere toolbox of models to apply when I need to; it has fundamentally improved my ability to approach problems rigorously and flexibly. The material is mostly a means for developing this more essential ability. I believe a math education at The Citadel would be good preparation for any profession for which analytical thinking is essential.”

“To be successful in business, leaders must have the skill-set and financial aptitude to make informed, fact-based decisions in their careful evaluation of company growth opportunities and risks. Mathematics taught me the techniques and discipline to understand how to solve complex problems and this has provided great value to me as a business thinker and leader. Additionally, studying mathematics helped me obtain my designation as a Fellow of the Society of Actuaries.”

"At The Citadel I majored in Computer Science with a minor in Cyber Security. During my four years in this course of study I was challenged and learned a lot. I learned all about different protocols and methods that computers use and how to make programs and how to learn a programming language and so much more. The department offered so many opportunities to succeed and to help me learn more about this field of study. From everything taught in class, to joining the programming team, to being a member of the Association for Computing Machinery, to working as a research assistant and getting a paper published with Dr. Banik, the department has provided me an extraordinary education and helped me to succeed.

I currently have a career as a Cyber Warfare Engineer with the United States Navy. To be accepted to this program I had to undergo an intense technical interview with representatives from the Navy Fleet Cyber Command. If it had not been for what I had learned in this department thanks to such great professors as Dr. Shankar Banik, Dr. Mike Verdicchio, and all the rest, I would not have passed the interview and would not be where I am today."
