Career Information for Mathematics Majors and Minors: Career needs in a wide variety of vocations are met by the diverse course offerings in the Mathematics Department. These include vocations in Secondary Teaching, Business Management, and Actuarial Science; vocations that involve research or applications of Mathematics in business, govern- ment, and industry; and vocations involving research or applications of Mathematics in the physical and social sci- ences. The needs of those preparing for continued study and research in Mathematics are met also by the departmental offerings. The undergraduate degree programs are designed to be sufficiently flexible to meet career aspirations, to allow for individual exploration in various areas of interest, and also to permit suitable breadth for a liberal education. Students are urged to consult with the Mathematics Undergraduate Director or Mathematics faculty in planning their programs. Information on careers in Mathematics can be secured from the Mathematics Undergraduate Director and from the Mathematics Career Center in Stevenson 313. Students interested in meeting the requirements for cer- tification to teach secondary school Mathematics must con- sult with a Mathematics Education advisor to design a special program of studies.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
