Caraga State University

Ampayon, Butuan City

Caraga State University (CSU), in its mission to produce competent and responsive human capital towards the sustainable development of Caraga Region and beyond, envisioned itself to become a globally-engaged University excelling in science, engineering, and the arts. (Source: CSU Board Res. No. 35-10, s.2017)

The University has six existing colleges, one of which includes the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS). One of the departments of CAS is the Mathematics Department which serves as the home department for the offering of the Bachelor of Science in Mathematics Program (BS Math). The program aims to prepare the student to take graduate studies either in Pure and Applied Mathematics, to teach Mathematics up to the junior undergraduate level and to take immediately Mathematics-oriented job in business, industry, or in the government sector.

The University has been awarded by the Commission on Higher Education as**Center of Development in Mathematics** effective October 2, 2009 to October 2, 2014. This award is retained effective January 1, 2016 to December 31, 2018. Moreover, through the continuous upgrade of resources of the University it is now one of the 20 SUCs in the country awarded with **Level IV** status.

The present BS Math program adheres to CHED Memorandum Order No 48, Series of 2017 which is the PSG for the

- In 2001, offering of BS Math was approved through BOT Res. No. 38-06, s.2001
- In 2005, BOT Res. No. 61-04, s.2005 was passed approving in principle the proposed revision of programs and unification and renumbering of courses
- In 2009, BS Mathematics program of the university was granted
**Center of Development (COD)**by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) - In 2010, the program was again revised in accordance to the provision of Republic Act No. 7722, known as the “Higher Education Act of 1994”
- In 2016, the university was granted
**Center of Development in Mathematics**by CHED - In 2018, the program was given
**Level III Accreditation Status**by AACCUP

What can you do with a BS Math Degree?

Graduates with well-grasped mathematical skills are in demand in all kinds of industries all around the country, and even abroad. Since studying math helps one to develop skills in logical thinking, problem-solving, and decision-making, graduates of the program will have access, but not limited, to the following job opportunities:

- Careers in academia and research
- Careers in accountancy and finance
- Careers in banking
- Actuarial careers
- Statistician careers

Reports of the 2016 Bachelor of Science in Mathematics Graduates Tracer Study showed that the implementation of the BS Mathematics program remained responsive and relevant to the demand of the present times. Here are some highlights of the study:

- 92% of the BS Mathematics graduates are currently employed, in which 58.33% of their jobs are related to the program they’ve finished
- 79.17% of these employed graduates waited three (3) months before getting their first job after graduation and 20.83% of them took more than three (3) months to get their first job
- 66.67% of the BS Math graduates consider the program to be very competitive in the job market.
