Doan’s Answer

Computer science is a good field these days because if you are good at math, you can go into the field of Artificial Intelligence. The AI field has a lot of math where you would use linear algebra, probability, multivariate calculus, optimization, and other techniques to build and train AI models.

Debbie’s Answer

There are so many opportunities for those good at math! You can major in Mathematics as it is well respected by hiring employers as math is the foundation for so many disciplines in engineering, science, business, accounting, finance, teaching, etc. There are other types of math majors within Applied Math -- talk to a college counselor who can help steer you based on your interests!

Bruce’s Answer

Hi Farrah - All I can think to say is that I was always fairly good at math and have a Computer Science degree and have enjoyed working in tech and software for 40 years.

I'm really glad I found something that I enjoy and pays well and is available everywhere and has lots of people I like working with.

Math is needed to be an accountant and for any science field: engineering (there are many), doctor, medical research, etc, etc.

All these jobs will have quite good pay that will always be needed.

Good luck!
Thank you comment icon I was very interested in engineering but I'm REALLY bad at physics Farrah

M’s Answer

Oddly enough this was a great mystery to me too back in college. Surprisingly the answer is teaching. If you like math, imagine teaching it. It is a very noble career. The other thing you could potentially do is look at being coming an architect.

Good luck either way. I am sure 2+2 will always equal 4 :)

Sam’s Answer

Compute science is a great degree for an individual that is good at math. There are lot opportunities especially since a lot of companies are going through digital transformations. Also another area to look into is machine learning and artificial intelligence which uses linear algebra.

Simeon’s Answer

I'd agree that any kind of engineering would probably be a good fit for you along with tech related careers. You could also think about jobs related to finance, such as being a financial analyst. Science careers like being a physicist, chemist, or lab tech are possibilities as well.

Julian’s Answer

Answers can definitely vary depending on the availability of courses at your specific school. At my school, I think relevant courses could be operations and information management (think Excel and database management), accounting, finance, or operations and analytics. Hope these are helpful!

Jezreel’s Answer

Hello. I have a degree in mathematics and I can honestly vouch that there are tons of fields that utilize mathematics. Most of the fields you mentioned uses math so I wouldn’t worry about getting a math degree if that’s something you were considering. Something like business, you still get to go into calculus, but business focused. Computer science goes up to integral calculus and nothing further aside from probably discrete mathematics. So you can still exercise your math skills with courses like these. Only if you have a greater passion to study math and it’s abstractions, then I would recommend you consider getting a degree in mathematics. Once you get into proof based mathematics, you start venturing into a whole new world of understanding mathematics in its rawest form. That was the case for me, but everyone is different. I’ve met tons of people during my college career who love math, but also decided to use it elsewhere in their respective majors. It all comes down to how you as a person weight your options. Good luck!

Sumitaka’s Answer

If you are good at it and like it so much, majoring on mathematic would be the choice that you can pursue academic career and you can do that for the entire life. Other science fields such as physics and chemistry use significant mathematical muscle as researcher as well.

If you like mathematics and see what you could apply on business , it actually is quite fungible skill. Fields like software/hardware engineering, computer science, accounting are obvious choices while I know several super math students on successful career in business management or supply chain.

Rose’s Answer

You should go into a data science / statistics program. Data scientists are at the heart of AI (artificial intelligence). It is a rapidly growing field and companies are having a hard time finding enough qualified candidates. The applications of data science range across just about every industry: medicine, finance, marketing, etc. AI is also used to solve a wide variety of problems. Computer programming is also important for this field.
