Mathematics and statistics are found in almost every sector of work, academia, and everyday life. Math and statistics majors develop many transferable skills including critical thinking, problem diagnosis and solving, computer skills, and quantitative skills.

Mathematicians work as analysts, research associates, technical consultants, computer scientists, or systems engineers, to name a few. Earning a graduate degree in a related area such as statistics, computer science, science, or engineering combined with an undergraduate math background could lead to interesting careers such as bioinformatics, digital imaging, climatology, or financial mathematics.

Statistics is the science of learning from data and of measuring, controlling, and communicating uncertainty as an essential factor in scientific and societal advances. Statistics is critical as academia, businesses, and governments increasingly demand expertise in making data-driven decisions.Statistics is becoming more important in modern society in providing succinct information for making decisions. Statistics is used in a wide variety of fields including science, technology, business, health, and social sciences.
