Life After Rose-Hulman

What can you do with a math degree?

A degree in mathematics can take you all kinds of places across business, industry, and government. The role of mathematics is not always immediately obvious, but the most remarkable scientific discoveries, new technologies, and economic insights tend to have mathematical concepts at their cores.

With your mathematics education, you might choose to move directly into a position as a financial data analyst or an actuary. A mathematics background is essential for software engineers, cryptoanalysts, economists, and operations researchers, to name a few of many fields relying on mathematics. You could continue your studies in graduate school—adding anything from an MBA to a scientific degree. You can also take your knowledge and love of math to the front of a classroom and teach others.
