The mathematics major prepares students, upon graduation, to transfer to a four-year college or university to pursue professional careers requiring quantitative reasoning and analytical thinking. Traditional mathematics occupations consist of teaching positions in schools and colleges or research positions in universities or industry. Other related mathematics fields include statistics, survey and market research, operations research, computer systems design and programming, economics and finances, and robotics and aerodynamics. Careers in applied mathematics usually focus on developing mathematical models for technical and scientific data, whether in physics, chemistry, biology, engineering or medicine.
