Mathematics Major (2014-2015 Bulletin)


"My academic experience at Murray State University was excellent due to the great quality of the Mathematics department. My professors truly cared about my success, and encouraged me daily to meet my goals. This environment and the rigorous course work truly prepared me for my current position teaching in the Mississippi Delta with Teach for America. "
