Overview

People with Mathematics degrees are found in a broad range of occupations where quantitative skills are needed; one of the largest employers of mathematics is the National Security Agency. Often a minor field of study (such as computer science) provides the supporting credential for entry-level jobs.

Key facts:

Actuarial and Business Applications:

The actuarial and business applications concentration from Lake Superior State University combines mathematical knowledge with quantitative business applications. The result is a very marketable degree that provides many exciting career opportunities for graduates. A student should be prepared to take the first actuarial examination in the spring of his/her junior year and the second examination the following spring. A student choosing this emphasis will complete a minor in accounting-finance.

Teaching Certification:

A completion of professional education coursework, including a semester of student teaching, prepares students for elementary or secondary teacher certification in Michigan and Ontario.

Graduate School:

An undergraduate mathematics major with emphasis on abstraction, together with an analytical approach to problem solving, continues to provide strong preparation for graduate work in diverse fields — especially when combined with a minor in the related field.
