What will you do? A doctoral degree in mathematics usually is the minimum education needed, except in the federal government. Employment is expected to contract, reflecting the decline in the number of jobs with the title mathematician; competition will be keen for the limited number of jobs. Master's and doctoral degree holders with a strong background in mathematics and a related discipline, such as computer science or engineering, should have better employment opportunities in related occupations.
