Bachelor of Science in Mathematics

What do you do with a degree in mathematics? College graduates with mathematics skills enjoy an array of job opportunities because of the national shortage of graduates in STEM fields. Math-based careers are projected to grow at a fast pace because of the reliance on big data in businesses and government agencies — an area with big opportunities for math majors. The B.S. degree in mathematics is the minimal entry requirement for most careers in mathematics. In addition, it provides easy access to careers in health, science, and engineering.
