Mathematics graduates have many career options. A small sampling of recent choices include: actuarial science, banking, systems engineering, managerial consulting, managerial training, computer consulting, scientific program analysis, bio-analysis, mathematical consulting, statistics, economic modeling, and teaching at all levels.

Saint Mary's also offers a primarily online Master of Science in Data Science program, open to both men and women.  Throughout the program you will learn to manipulate data rather than performing simple surface analysis, and as a result, dig beyond the level of a simple data analyst. According to Program Director Kristin Kuter, "Our graduates will be prepared to enter into the data analysis process at any stage, from the initial formulation of the question to visualizing data to interpreting the results and drawing conclusions. As a result, they'll be more versatile practitioners, whether it's for their own start-up, an employer, or a client."
