Careers in math. There are so many great careers in mathematics 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.

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.

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.

The following list gives some of the job title held by math graduate:
