Careers in Mathematics, Computer Science and Physics
  • Upon graduation, some majors continue their study in graduate school, some find employment in mathematically-oriented jobs in business or industry, and some teach in secondary schools. Still others choose careers or professional graduate programs not obviously related to their major. All benefit from the ability they have acquired to think quantitatively and rigorously, to solve problems, and to apply abstract reasoning to concrete situations; and all benefit from the simple fact that they have demonstrated to future employers their ability to succeed in a difficult field.
