Mathematics graduates can pursue diverse career paths, including high-tech industries, many areas of business, the medical sciences, communications, or education.
The increasingly complex problems encountered in such fields as engineering, management science, economics, biology, agriculture, military science, insurance and transportation all require strong mathematical skills.
Today's computer technology has led to a great demand for people educated in computational mathematics (such as operations research, statistics and numerical analysis) as well as in traditional mathematics.
An undergraduate degree in mathematical sciences can provide a sound educational foundation for careers in top-rated professions such as actuary, statistician, computer systems analyst or computer programmer.
Teachers of mathematics are needed at all levels, and Illinois Wesleyan graduates with certification to teach mathematics have enjoyed excellent opportunities in the public schools.
