Many occupations today require a college educated individual who can write and speak well, solve problems, learn new information quickly and work well with others on a team. This means that college graduates use their education in a wide variety of fields, and your future career may relate more to your personal career interests, work values and transferable skills than any specific academic major. However, the following list contains a representative sample of job titles of former graduates with a math or computer science major. Use this as an idea list, and remember that it represents some, but certainly not all, of the careers you might consider.

Students obtaining employment immediately upon graduation are usually those with the best college records and a willingness to relocate to find a job. Some of these jobs also require education beyond a bachelors' degree. The Computer and Information Science track (CIS) within the Bachelor of Science in Computer and Information Science program is designed for those students who intend to follow applied areas of Computer and Information Science. This track is distinguished from the Computer Science (CSC) track by its greater flexibility and higher elective content. Students taking either track will learn the latest in programming technology, and will gain the important fundamental knowledge to grow in the dynamic field of computer and information science.
