In today's information-overload world, the modern citizen is routinely confronted by a maze of numbers and data of various forms. To be able to make sense out of this, an increased knowledge of mathematics is essential. Mathematics is at the heart of many of today's advancements in science and technology and are contributing to progress in other fields such as industrial and architectural design, economics, biology, linguistics, and psychology. Studying mathematics can provide you with a competitive advantage in many fields. An undergraduate degree in math can also give you a firm foundation for further study in a variety of other disciplines.

A degree in financial math and statistics should not mean that you are automatically required to dress in a business suit and work on Wall Street. Other career paths allow you to use your skills outside of the traditional office setting. The field of agriculture needs statisticians to help analyze plant and animal experiments, as well as to interpret the data. Graduates may obtain a master’s degree and a Ph.D. to pursue a career in teaching or research at the university level.
