Undergraduate Research

Capstone Overview

The Georgia College & State University Department of Mathematics understands the importance of providing an undergraduate research experience for our majors. To support this goal, mathematics majors work under the direction of a departmental faculty member to develop a research project involving advanced mathematical topics within the student's area of interest. Our majors are actively engaged in the research process in a collaborative setting, make connections between courses, and develop valuable presentation skills. The annual Mathematics Department Capstone Day represents the culmination of the experience as students showcase their research for faculty, fellow students, and family. Such an experience is commonly viewed as one of the key elements under consideration when applying for jobs or a graduate program.
