What Can You Do With A Math Degree?

Studying mathematics can provide you with a competitive advantage in many fields. A math degree can open up a world of opportunities and career paths that can help make a difference. Mathematics plays a major role in the bottom line of industrial organizations and helps companies perform better in today’s data-driven marketplace. Mathematical careers outside of academia rarely carry a simple title of “mathematician.” The very idea of a career in mathematics has evolved and diversified and is often coupled with a specialty or area of research interest. Consequently, a wide variety of career opportunities are open to people with mathematical talent and training.

Mathematics is at the heart of many of today’s advancements in science and technology and is contributing to progress in other fields such as industrial and architectural design, economics, biology, linguistics, and psychology. For an undergraduate course, a typical course length would be three years, though this may be four in educational systems such as the United States, or if the course includes a year abroad studies or a sandwich work placement.

What Do People Who Study Mathematics Do After Graduation?

While a maths graduate may spend a career exploring and teaching others theoretical mathematical knowledge, a qualification in the subject can also open doors to a wide range of professional fields. Maths graduates are often headhunted by the finance sector before they have even completed their studies, due to their known developed aptitude for financial mathematics and computational analysis that makes them ideal for positions such as an investment analyst or tax advisor.

What Can You Do With A Math Degree? Here are the different career options that math graduates can choose from.

  • Math Teaching
  • Engineering, Market, and Operations Research
  • Actuarial Jobs
  • Meteorological and Logistics Forecasting
  • Biomathematics
  • Computer Programmers and Software Engineers

You Can Make An Impact:

Many different types of organizations hire mathematicians and computational scientists. You can easily search the websites of organizations and corporations that interest you to learn more about their location(s), mission statement and objectives, history, and job requirements.
