Karin’s Answer

Hi Helen,

You can of course just straight up get a bachelors, masters, PhD in mathematics. Other options include applied mathematics, statistics or data science. Computer science, physics and engineering would require a fair amount of math. Depending on what you specialize in, it could be very math heavy, or not so much. Then there is accounting or economics. You could also be a math teacher. You can be a math major with a minor in something else, or a double major.

I am leaving you a couple of links to CA math departments below (and there are many more):

https://www.niche.com/colleges/search/best-colleges-for-math/s/california/

Have a look at the information, and contact the admissions office and/or the department if you have specific questions.

I hope this helps! Good luck, and have fun mathing!

Andrew’s Answer

Mathematics is the language of science and technology. Any STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) discipline/program can be considered math related.

The key question for you is whether you are interested in majoring in mathematics, or you are interested in science and technology. This is a choice you will have the opportunity to make when you are in college.

Meanwhile, if you are interested in mathematics or any STEM discipline, consider taking as many math courses as possible in high school to prepare you for the STEM-related academic programs of your choice in college.
