What can you do with a Math degree?...
... Apparently, really enjoy your job! According to CareerCast.com's rankings of the 10 best and 10 worst jobs, being a mathematician is the best job to have in 2014! Not only that but 3 of the top 5 jobs are math related with Statistician coming in at #3 and Actuary at #4. To paint an even better picture of the opportunities that AMS offers and that Mines offers, 9 of the top 10 jobs are STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) related. So with all due respect to lumberjacks everywhere, we know what you can do with your mathematics education -- love your work!
