Typical Degree Paths: Bachelor’s in mathematics, actuarial science, statistics or other analytical field; master’s in mathematics, theoretical mathematics or applied mathematics; some positions may require a PhD in theoretical or applied mathematics.
According to the Mathematical Association of America, math professions are becoming increasingly attractive. In fact, mathematician, actuary, and statistician jobs are among the most promising career paths based on their income levels, growth outlook, and low-stress work environments.
Tips on pacing your studying:
The recommended amount of time to spend on your studies is 2-3 hours per credit per week (4 hours per credit per week for Math classes), right from week 1. For example, for a 3-unit course, this means 6-9 hours devoted to studying per week.
