A Degree That Adds Up

Mathematics majors can head in many different directions, because they've learned how to think and reason. Employers appreciate that, and graduate programs will accept mathematics majors into almost any program of study. Our mathematics majors have gone off to graduate school or jobs in computer science, finance, actuarial science, law school, economics, political science, or city planning. Yes, some have even continued in graduate school with mathematics or statistics!
