Mathematics is at the foundation of science, ranging from the beauty of theory and pure thought to applications in almost all areas of the natural sciences, engineering, economics, finance, and even the social sciences. As such, a bachelor’s degree in mathematics offers a unique combination of intellectual breadth and disciplinary depth.
Specifically, mathematics offers a great variety of academic career paths, ranging from teaching at all levels to research in mathematics and its adjacent fields.
A bachelor’s degree in mathematics qualifies for graduate study not only in Mathematics, but also in neighboring disciplines such as Engineering, Physics, Astronomy, Economics, Finance, MBA programs, and many others.
Mathematicians find employment in a variety of high-level strategic positions in which analytic thinking, problem-solving, and quantitative skills are paramount, ranging from consultancy, public administration, information technology, and data security, to high-level management.
In surveys, mathematicians consistently report strong personal identification with their field in combination with a high level of job satisfaction.
There are few undergraduate degrees which rival mathematics in the diversity of rewarding job options. These include the following:
- Insurance companies hire mathematicians on actuarial and other analyst positions
- Quantitative Finance and Financial Engineering offers numerous opportunities involving fairly deep mathematical concepts
- Operations Researchers help organizations, businesses, and government find efficient solutions to organizational and strategic planning questions, including scheduling and distribution problems, resource allocation, facilities design, and forecasting
- Mathematicians are frequently employed in Information Technology positions. In particular, mathematical knowledge is essential for work in information security and cryptography
- Statisticians are employed by large organizations and work in research and development divisions from academia to industry to analyze data from surveys and experiments
- Education offers a wide field of employment ranging from secondary school teachers to university professors
- There are job opportunities in Engineering Mathematics in sectors from aerospace engineering and petroleum engineering to a wide range of other engineering disciplines
- Mathematicians pursue academic careers at research institutes or universities.
