Career Options for Mathematics

A degree in mathematics can prepare students for graduate studies and other professional opportunities in a variety of fields. Potential job titles for someone with a background in mathematics or computational sciences can include teacher, actuary, mathematician, statistician, software developer, financial analyst, and data analyst.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (https://www.bls.gov/ooh/math/home.htm), the median salary for mathematics occupations in 2020 was $93,170 and mathematics occupations are expected to see faster than average growth from 2020 to 2030. The Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics has produced a brochure (https://www.siam.org/students-education/programs-initiatives/thinking-of-a-career-in-applied-mathematic) providing an overview of some career options for STEM majors.

For students majoring in other academic disciplines, a mathematics minor can enhance prospects for graduate or professional studies and increase employment opportunities.
