Studying Mathematics at St. Mary’s

Ian Martines, Ph.D., lectures students on mathematics.

Mathematics – from actuarial science to financial math – is about more than the theory of numbers. It discovers tools from which a quantitative understanding of our world is made possible.

Moreover, the language of mathematics is truly a universal language, transcending ethnic, societal, and national boundaries.

Finally, mathematics also is a critical filter, opening doors to exciting and high-paying careers in business, government, teaching and research.

  • Career Opportunities

    Mathematics majors develop skills such as arguing logically and rigorously, thinking abstractly, formulating and solving problems, analyzing data, and creating and analyzing mathematical models. Employers greatly value these skills.

    Areas in which Mathematics graduates seek employment include:

    • Actuarial science
    • Biotechnology
    • Computer science
    • Cryptology
    • Finance
    • Research
    • Teaching

The Mathematics Department at St. Mary’s was influential in showing me what a collaborative work environment that nurtures student’s academic development looks like. They have an open-door policy that is welcoming. As a result, I got to know many of my professors and I often sought their advice on career matters.
