Where might a Rose-Hulman math degree take you? You can begin to see the world of career options when you look at the employers who've hired our math grads, and below is just a short list. The many career resources that follow also show the expanse of possibilities the math field has to offer.

In addition, many Rose graduates go on to excellent graduate schools, leading to even wider career choices, including college teaching. Deciding whether and when to go to grad school is a topic your math profs would be happy to discuss with you.
