Your degree in Mathematics offers a diversity of job opportunities, especially when paired with a required semester in computer science. You can pursue a career in such areas as actuarial science (primarily in the insurance industry), quantitative analysis (a growing field in the financial industry), market research, scientific programming, biomedical statistics, cryptography (one of the nation’s largest employers of mathematicians is the National Security Agency), market trading (such as Wall Street) and diverse other fields.
Of course, if you graduate with a Mathematics degree with a teacher education concentration, you’ll be qualified to teach in elementary and secondary NJ schools. Not to mention, you can also go on to graduate or professional studies. Ramapo graduates have gone on to attend Ph. D. programs at Harvard University, Bryn Mawr College, University of Denver, and Lehigh University, as well as graduate programs at Arizona State University and Vanderbilt University.
