Mathematics - Integrated Credential Option, B.S.


What will I learn?


A degree in mathematics can open the door to a huge range of amazing careers. After all, math is involved in just about every job in some way, and it's particularly essential in the in-demand fields of science, technology, and engineering. Math majors tend to have well-developed skills in logical thinking and problem solving. They are experts at analyzing data and creating models to extract meaningful conclusions. They can identify patterns and use quantitative data to construct solutions. That's why the kind of jobs you can get with a math degree are so diverse. You could pursue careers in areas like insurance, banking, education, logistics, and more.

Math skills are clearly important in many careers, most notably the science, technology, and engineering professions. But such skills also feature prominently in some careers that may not seem like a natural end point for someone with a math degree. Video game developer and computer animator are just two examples of less-obvious jobs that actually use calculus, for instance.
