A math degree with many career options

Double majors and math careers

Although you may love numbers and using your critical thinking skills, you may not be aware of the many jobs available to math majors. At The University of Findlay, our math students are usually able to complete a double major in four years, giving them even more career choices. Second majors can include education (adolescent/young adult integrated mathematics), computer science, business or many others.

"I often compare my job to being a detective. Actuaries have to find out, not only what the numbers are telling us, but more importantly why. I enjoy the variety of projects and problem solving, it's not the same thing day in and day out."
-- Laura (Heitkamp) Nieport, Actuarial Analyst at Celina Insurance Group, Bachelor's of Science in Mathematics, '06
