Mathematics — What is it?
Mathematics is the study of structure, form and the relationship among numerical, geometric and logical constructs. While mathematics is a field that serves science, it also stands on its own as a discipline worthy of independent study. Applied mathematics focuses on the application of math to other fields.

Areas of Study in Mathematics:

Arithmetic, Algebra, Trigonometry, Discrete Mathematics, Probability and Statistics, Calculus, Analytic Geometry, Differential Equations, Linear Algebra, Multivariable Calculus, Mathematical Modeling, and Mathematics Applications to Business, Economics, Engineering and Technology.


Career Opportunities — What can I do with a Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics?
Mathematicians develop critical thinking, analytical reasoning and problem solving skills that apply to multiple career fields, such as research and development, testing, design, operations, statistical analysis, risk management, computer programming, data processing, networking, investment, sales and teaching.

Potential employers include:

Business, Manufacturing Firms, Market Research Firms, Government Agencies, Consulting Firms, Insurance Agencies, Computer Companies, Banks and Financial Organizations, Public and Private Schools. For more, please visit Career Counseling.
