A career in mathematics is a wise choice. The world is becoming increasingly quantitative. Mathematics plays a crucial role in deciding policies which affect our lives, policies ranging from health and the environment to multi-million dollar investments. Organizations are depending more and more on quantitative reasoning and complex mathematical models to solve their problems. A degree in mathematics will give you the skills you need to work on important, challenging real-world problems in a broad range of highly paid positions in business, industry, government and education.

With an undergraduate mathematics degree, you may for example:

- develop new models for evaluating stock options and pricing derivatives,
- create state-of-the-art techniques for predicting atmospheric reactions and transport of chemical pollution,
- improve algorithms for computer-aided aircraft design,
- design procedures for DNA and protein sequencing,
- develop image and voice recognition systems,
- help prepare the next generation for the analytically demanding world by teaching mathematics.

Many companies and government organizations seek mathematics majors, as well as every school district in the U.S. See this list of careers using math.
