Mastering mathematics can open countless opportunities for you because of your highly desirable skill set.

In a recent Wall Street Journal article, mathematician was ranked the top job out of 200. A graduate degree in mathematics makes you an ideal candidate for a career in university-level teaching and research, statistics, actuarial science, computer science, finance and many other fields. Employers will hire you for your quantitative and problem-solving skills, analytical and logical thinking, and ability to draw conclusions from data. Through your studies of pure and applied mathematics at Brooklyn College, you will gain experience with current mathematical software and technology; you'll also have the opportunity to study computational mathematics in conjunction with the Department of Computer and Information Science. And you'll learn from the best — our expert faculty develop and conduct high-quality research and participate in the mathematics and urban education doctoral programs of the CUNY Graduate Center.
