#### Majors and Degrees

Students who earn degrees in mathematics readily obtain jobs with high-technology companies and in business, industry, government and teaching. Salaries and working conditions compare with those of engineers and scientists. More information about and resources for careers in mathematics can be found on our careers page.

Students who plan to major in mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, engineering or computer science should have had four years of mathematics in high school, including pre-calculus. Students who are required to take mathematics as part of their degree program in college should have had at least two years of algebra and one year of geometry in high school.
