Mathematics majors enter a variety of careers, from business and industry, professional careers, computer science, health, research, teaching, and go to the top graduate schools. Some careers include Mathematician, Financial Analyst, Teacher, Actuary, Systems Analyst, Biometrician, Operations Research Analyst, among many others. Some of these careers might require a graduate degree, and majors in our mathematics program have the advantage of a very strong, broad undergraduate education for the applications for graduate programs.
It’s really exciting to think that I started my math research the second semester of my freshman year, and a paper has already come of it. Meeting some really nice people, not only at Miami but also at other universities through conferences, has really opened doors for me.
