Jim recommends the following next steps:
On the other hand, it should be appreciated that mathematics is the language, not exclusively, of physical sciences, engineering, statistical science, and econometrics. Therefore, a bachelor’s degree, or even a minor, in mathematics can add value for many of the aforementioned fields as well as door opener for advanced degrees in these fields.
The most obvious career path for a holder of a bachelor’s degree in mathematics is in teaching mathematics from K through 12. It may be less obvious, but it is important to keep in mind that mathematics is all about analytical, quantitative, and logical reasoning. Many employers value such skills irrespective of their business ventures. Simply put, with mathematical training in your pocket, you can be easily “trained” or “directed” to serve the needs of many occupational fields.
Lastly, many holders of a master’s degree or doctor’s degree in mathematics find gainful occupations in physical sciences, engineering, statistical science, and econometrics. Of course, with a master’s or doctor’s degree in mathematics, college teaching can be a viable option too.
