Missed our career list? Here’s another look.

BYU’s Math Department has good reason to draw attention to its study. The public is becoming increasingly aware of just how many doors a math degree can open.

You might have your own reasons for not having visited the ‘careers’ section of this site yet: It’s too long, it lists too many options, or maybe, “A good job really isn’t my thing.”

But if that’s not you and you somehow overlooked that page on the site, here are ten more well-paid professions for math majors, provided by CNN. (Then go check out the big list under ‘careers’ at the top!)

The most common question students ask math teachers at every level is “When will I use math?” WeUseMath.org is a non-profit website that helps to answer this question. This website describes the importance of mathematics and many rewarding career opportunities available to students who study mathematics.
