Mathematics - Actuarial Science Emphasis, B.S.

Mathematics degrees allow for a wide variety of employment options. The following careers are very mathematics centered, though in many cases additional training beyond a mathematics degree (or at least beyond a B.S. Mathematics degree) is needed to qualify for employment in these fields: actuarial work, education, research analysis, cryptology, systems analysis, robotics engineering, design modeling (creating cost efficient models), geomatics engineering, photogrammatism, stock trading, biomathematics, accounting or auditing, population ecology, aspects of forensic analysis and some types of computer programming design. There are also jobs for mathematics graduates in the federal government, mainly in the department of defense. The degree required depends on the type of job in the areas mentioned, and the salary level.
