    Challenging & Fun

    Reach Your Potential

A degree in Mathematics will serve you well. Many companies in the industry and service sector are interested in graduates who have a degree in Mathematics. While some students complete a Bachelor’s Degree and from there, get a job, others continue on to graduate school. The Wall Street Journal Report of 2010 ranks Mathematics as the 6th best field for jobs. Actuarial science, which is a specialty within Mathematics, is number 1!

Students who major in mathematics often double major in education, science, engineering, or computer science. These majors have natural connections.  You might be surprised to find that creativity plays a large role in higher-level math.  Major in math and see for yourself!
