Mathematics

Consider a mathematics profession
A mathematics degree opens up many opportunities. Applied mathematicians apply theories and techniques to practical questions, such as the effectiveness of a new drug or the aerodynamics of a new car. Theoretical mathematicians identify and resolve unexplained issues to increase basic knowledge that leads to advancements in science and engineering.

Job opportunities
Job prospects are plentiful for mathematicians. Consider the following options:
  • A Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics is good preparation for government employment
  • A double major in mathematics and a related discipline—such as computer or physical science—is particularly desirable to many employers
  • An advanced degree (master’s or Ph.D.) is the norm in the private industry where mathematicians often work as computer programmers, system analysts, systems engineers, and statisticians. Two growing fields are cloud computing and data mining
