, CT,
Contemporary mathematicians helped researchers complete the Human Genome Project, play a role in code breaking and national security and are key players in developing lifelike animation in Pixar films like “Cars 2” and “Brave.”Whatever your interests are, mathematics provides a good foundation for many careers.


If you enjoy numbers, problem-solving and analyzing data, mathematics is a major for you. You can become a financial analyst evaluating economic conditions to help a corporation make smart business decisions, or an actuary using data to predict health trends for an insurance company. Mathematicians work with chemical engineers to develop mathematical models that further research and development of products, and applied mathematicians collaborate with industrial designers to create the best aerodynamic conditions when designing airplanes, structures or cars. 

In the program, you learn about the newest technological innovations used in mathematics and learn how to communicate your research effectively. You gain knowledge and skills you can use in fields such as science, government, business and education. You choose courses in your area of interest—such as teaching, statistics or actuarial studies and graduate prepared to pursue an advanced degree. 

The job outlook is good for mathematicians. Employment in math-related occupations is expected to grow 28 percent through 2024, which is much higher than for other occupations.
