There are so many great careers in math that you can find with a math major. Explore them here

"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. 

The following list gives some of the job title held by math graduate. Click on them to find out how you can work in one or more of these careers.

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.

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. Since getting a math major is not easy at all, it makes you look smart in the eyes of potential employers.

Therefore, they think that if you can do math, you can probably do anything else they throw at you. So, if you have been thinking about changing your major because you have been hearing from friends that a math major is irrelevant and useless, think again.

After I graduated I received interviews with Analog devices, insurance companies, Bank of America, computer programming firms, and even in market research.

Careers in math are not limited to the above, but it does give you an idea about the many opportunities a math major offers.

My goal is to help you explore your possibilities; After that, hopefully, you will not change your major.

And if you never planned to major in math, I hope I can inspire you to pursue a degree in math.

No one said it would be easy. However, if you succeed with this major, you can probably write your own tickets to many jobs.
