Why Major in Mathematics & Statistics? 


The US Department of Education recently reported that only 16% of high school seniors are both proficient in math and show an interest in pursuing a STEM-related career. Math majors are some of the most employable graduates and are often near the top of income brackets for their career level. Whether math majors go to work in STEM or take a less traditional path, options abound for them.

To help these students begin thinking about their futures before entering the job market, the US Department of Education has created a 
guide to the best careers for math majors. It highlights several common paths of employment, as well as a few outside-the-box options. The guide also explores useful workplace skills learned in the major and provides a collection of resources to help new math graduates.
