Mathematics and Physics Department
The Department of Mathematics and Physics at Grambling State University has produced physics and mathematics graduates for many years who are currently working across the United States in a variety of occupations. We believe the small faculty to student ratio provided to our majors in the classroom and laboratory enhances their understanding of the fundamental concepts of physics. The department is proud of its record of sending its alumni on to graduate school, many of whom have gone on to received Ph.D.s in Mathematics, Physics, or materials science and engineering. Other alumni are on track to completing their Ph.D. requirements. Also, the GSU Department of Mathematics and Physics has a very high job placement.
A diversity of careers exists for physicists and mathematicians. Physicists and mathematicians with baccalaureates, masters, and with doctorates work in a rich variety of jobs, mostly in industry, and pursue a diverse range of technical and nontechnical careers. Mathematics and physics majors work as physicists, mathematicians, technicians, engineers, managers, computer specialists, technical coordinators, designers, trainers, financial analysts, supervisors, researchers, entrepreneurs, presidents, owners, consultants, educators, and many more.
