Alumni Early Career Profiles
An often asked question is: What can one do with a undergraduate mathematics degree, besides teach mathematics? The profiles below provide ample evidence for the utility of an undergraduate degree in mathematics. Some of our graduates choose to join the workforce immediately, while others pursue advanced degrees in engineering, the sciences, or professions such as law, medicine, or dentistry.
We encourage students to read over the profiles and reflect on the many opportunities that are available for mathematically trained graduates.

These profiles were created as a part of the American Mathematical Society (AMS) Early Career Profile Network. Unfortunately, the funding for the project ran out, and the web page is no longer updated. However, a number of the institutions still have profiles posted, and we encourage you to browse them through the links below. The Mathematical Association of America (MAA) website also has a variety of career profiles that may be of interest, and the sites http://weusemath.org/ and http://whatcanidowiththismajor.com/major/mathematics/ are additional excellent resources for career information.
