The intellectual and academic development afforded by an undergraduate degree in mathematics provides an excellent background for a wide variety of careers and research. Mathematics is extremely broad and thus offers diverse career opportunities. With such diversity comes the responsibility for each math major to design his or her own career path. There is no single plan that will work for every student of mathematics. It is important to continuously be on the lookout for career and research opportunities.
We encourage you to explore research opportunities, study abroad opportunities and internship and campus employment opportunities, the REU or REU+ program, and to check out contests and our department’s student organizations.
You can learn about opportunities in the department and what other students are up to in the Undergraduate Math Newsletter, published each semester.
