Math Careers

Modern technological society has many fields that need specialists in mathematics. In the coming years, there will be an increasing number of job opportunities for those who know and use mathematics. These include scientists, researchers, space technicians, mathematics teachers, actuaries and insurance specialists, and people who can combine mathematical knowledge with a scientific, computer, or business background.

If you are considering graduate school, mathematics is often an excellent undergraduate background -- not only for graduate work in mathematics itself, but even for an M.B.A. program, or medical or law school. Many people look at a degree in mathematics as proof of intelligence and a logical approach to problem solving.
