Mathematics

If you enjoy math, your career opportunities are not only numerous; they’re also reasonably lucrative. But, of course, it’s not all about the money. You probably thrive on solving problems and are eager to make sense of the most advanced equations. There is virtually no career that wouldn’t suit a math major who can think independently, creatively and critically.
