"What exciting careers in math can I find with a math degree?" My students ask me this question over and over

The short answer is everything! Yes, you don't know it yet, but with a hard earned major in mathematics, the sky is the limit

Many students who major in mathematics do not usually worry about what they are going to do with that until it is time to graduate.

Usually, students get a math major because they enjoy solving problems.

As a math major I can testify to that because I derive lots of satisfaction in solving math problems. I am also a teacher.

Talking about teaching, there is a common misconception that a major in math is of no use unless you plan to teach math.

Of course teaching is a good option since you will do the job that you know very well, but no math major will be stuck with teaching as the only job

The goal of this section of my site is to show you that once you have a math major your possibilities are endless.

The reason for this is because many places will hire you just because you have a math major.
