The Career Center's Career Guide for Mathematics

Math is the ultimate liberal art: it teaches one to think rigorously and logically as well as to express oneself concisely. Consequently, math majors can and do go on to do most everything. The Career Center's Career Guide for Mathematics provides a range of occupational opportunities that may serve as a starting point for considering how the study of mathematics may translate to a professional work setting.
