You might be surprised at the number of in-demand careers that are based on expertise in math—computer science, engineering, finance and more.

These rewarding jobs are just the beginning, though, as math skills are an advantage in, extend into, and apply to nearly every career.

Your opportunities to study math at Waubonsee may lead you to a four-year degree, but whatever you do, there’s no doubt that math is an essential element of success.
