Why Study Mathematics?

The college graduate with a bachelor’s degree in mathematics can qualify for a broad range of highly paid positions in business, government and secondary education.  Banks, insurance companies, oil companies and companies in the computer and communication industries employ many mathematicians, as do almost every bureau and branch of the federal government.  A bachelor’s degree in mathematics can also lead to graduate study in mathematics or in a variety of other fields such as economics, computer science, medicine, engineering, business and law.
