    Description

    Careers

    Career opportunities in mathematics lie in four different areas: working in the actuarial or financial services sectors; researching and applying mathematics in business, government or industry; doing research and teaching mathematics at a university; and teaching mathematics in a college or secondary school.

    K-State math graduates work as analysts, consultants, programmers or researchers for businesses; as financial, numerical or systems analysts for financial or high-tech companies; as actuaries for insurance and mutual fund companies; as consultants, cryptologists, mathematicians or statisticians for the
    government; or as mathematical scientists in research labs.

    Research and teaching at the university level requires additional training in the applied or theoretical side of mathematics. Researchers at major universities such as K-State create most new mathematics. Mathematics education involves teaching at the secondary school, community college, four-year college and university levels.

    The Department of Mathematics at K-State offers training in the fundamentals leading to positions in each of these career areas. Degrees granted by the department include the B.S., B.A.,M.S., concurrent B.S. and M.S. and Ph.D. Students who earn a master’s degree may pursue a career as a community college teacher.

    USA requirements for international students

    Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100. 

    After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department. 

    Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
