Jobs Outlook


After McDaniel

Our graduates have been very successful in obtaining positions in a variety of areas including computer corporations, insurance companies, communications firms, health services, school systems, and government agencies. Because mathematics students are involved in problem solving from the very beginning of their studies at McDaniel College, they are especially in demand by corporate and government recruiters.

Many have pursued graduate study at schools such as the University of Texas-Austin, Harvard University, the University of Virginia, Cornell University, the University of Michigan, North Carolina State University, the University of Maryland Baltimore, the University of California at Berkeley, Brandeis University, North Carolina State University, the Johns Hopkins University, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, Washington University at St. Louis, University of Maryland, Michigan State University, SUNY at Stony Brook, and the University of Pennsylvania. All have received either fellowships or assistantships which funded their studies at either the Master's or Ph.D. level.
