Mathematicians have a romance with numbers. They deal with the hard realities of statistics and the fragile beauty of complex theorems. Some become actuaries, economists, and businesspeople, working with concrete concepts. Others become professors, working with almost poetic abstractions and theories.
In short, there is lots of life beyond trig class.
Mathematics majors study exactly what you’d expect—lots and lots of math. Some mathematics programs offer opportunities to combine a degree in mathematics with one in business, economics, physics, or computer science. As you consider schools, make sure to check the available options.
