Mathematics majors are generally science-oriented and have set their career goals accordingly.
During four years of college work, mathematics majors learn basic mathematical concepts in the areas of differential and integral calculus, abstract algebra, probability and statistics, geometry and topology, real and complex analysis, numerical analysis and computer sciences and others.
In order to succeed in such studies, mathematics majors must develop skills in computation, logic, intuition, analysis and construction. The IU Southeast Mathematics Faculty offers either a Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts degree in mathematics.

Your major is not your career. Of course it can be.
A chemistry major can become a chemist, a history major can become an historian. But it is much more likely that your career choices will be enormously varied, and not tied to a specific major at all.
The 21st century workplace will challenge you to have many different jobs and most probably multiple careers. Your major will provide you a broad range of skills which will enable you to stay marketable in the fast-changing work world.
As you explore majors, be sure and take advantage of the following areas: college course bulletin, professors, upperclassmen, college alumni, family, friends and your Career Development Center Networking Program -- most importantly, don't panic! We're here to help.
