The spectrum of career opportunities for mathematics majors is quite appealing, with teaching and computer-related work being among the more popular. With a severe shortage of mathematicians in academia and in industry looming in the near future, a major in mathematics also provides a very viable entry into academic and actuarial professions and a variety of positions in industry, the computer field, and governmental service.

Approximately 50% of our Mathematics Majors have gone on to teach secondary or middle school mathematics.
