Question: i am really good at math and i'm wanting to major in mathematics and maybe minor in business or accounting. my dad has been nothing but "the only thing you can do with a math degree is teach", "teachers don't get paid much", "yaddy yaddy", "you should major in engineering and go into the air force" "serve them 8 years and they'll pay for your schooling". i don't want to go into the air force. is teaching really the only job you can get with a Mathematics degree.

Teaching is definitely not the only job you can get with a Math degree. Math majors are pretty flexible, they can do a wide variety of jobs. I've seen math majors go to be investment bankers/mutual fund managers, software engineers, statisticians, and actuaries along with being teachers.

Teaching is one of the jobs you can get with a math degree, but it's not the only job. As with any liberal arts/science degree, the type of work you do after you graduate is going to depend on what sorts of internships and on-campus experiences you get while you're in school, as well as, in the case of being an actuary, certain training/exams. In addition, for some fields, like computer programming, it'd benefit you to have a minor in that field. But some fields you can consider with a math major include: - K-12 teaching - Math professor (after a PhD) - Actuary (*EXTREMELY* lucrative) - Software engineering/programming - Statistician - Market research analyst - Financial analyst - Broker - Mathematical modeling - Cryptographer And lots of other options.

2 friends of mine did Mathematics in their undergrad ... 1 works for Microsoft in Seattle, the other for the Government. Both make very good money at a young age. Don't let someone limit you with their opinions.

Marketing, demographic research, consultant on behavioral cultural studies needed by advertisers and marketing firms, policy making-politics, urban planning, civic jobs, philanthropic organizations,lawyers,media and film, researcher, human relations, educators, economic jobs, global markets..etc etc etc... 13% of the upper income wealth ($200,000+) earners is now controlled or earned by minorities. African American, African diaspora, and Multicultural urban studies has become a boom in extreme luxury markets that did not use to entertain to people of color because formerly it was mostly majority controlled interest. Because African history has been rewritten in the views of ethnographers out to prove racial superiority.. medical science, real historians, archaeologists and art historians are discovering new research that reflects on today technology, science, cultures, and ideology and religion... So what was relatively seen as humdrum history has now found a new light and has also put perspective on things like Arab political policy and how we should really treat them....seeing as they hide some very painful African related atrocities that still occur today. How Africa and its diaspora should be regarded..and its political place in the grand scheme of things.. It would help to have a masters.. much like some arts bachelors degrees.. unless the education is higher ed there isn't much in the form of a pay check or call for studies with just a ba penned to them. pay outlook entry level to mid level general $ 34,080 to $44,691. but for college professors educators.. $37/hr tenure and prestige.. up to $100,000 at top ivy league colleges.
