SUMMARY

A degree in Mathematics is not only a valuable choice, but ordinarily an essential first step for pupils intending to pursue a career as a mathematics instructor, a business & data analyst, or a market research analyst. In fact, nationally, mathematics is of average popularity ranking as the 27th most popular degree. Last year, there were 21,856 mathematics graduates. In-state tuition for mathematics at private universities is, on average, 4.3 times more expensive than their public counterparts.

With an impressive 1238 colleges having programs for mathematics chances are that any colleges you are looking at will have a degree program for you. If you're looking to surround yourself with other mathematics majors, consider looking at colleges in California which have more undergraduates admitted to mathematics than any other state. Zooming out, the best region to pursue mathematics is in the Mid East region with University of Maryland-College Park, Binghamton University, and Pennsylvania State University-Main Campus best representing the region. Interestingly, our selection of the best conference to major in mathematics is the Big Ten Conference with University of Maryland-College Park, University of Minnesota-Twin Cities, and University of Wisconsin-Madison representing the conference. That said, our belief is that the best school for mathematics is Massachusetts Institute of Technology. You might also want to check out our list of the best colleges.

The best school is not necessarily the best school for you. There are a bunch of perspectives to think about when choosing ​university. Stuff like campus amenities, transportation services, and food could definitely refashion one's feelings on which school to attend. Here at authority.org, we've examined the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you want to know which mathematics college has the top campus, the answer is Harvard University. If, for example, you are primarily interested in which college has the best campus, then we have an entire page dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through government databases, student reviews, professor reviews, and more in order to evaluate all U.S. majors in an unbiased and informative way. Here you can find our comprehensive list for the colleges with the best student life and our pick for the college with the best student life for mathematics is Cornell University. Curious why? Continue scrolling to find out more about Authority's top selections. Many of our conclusions just might surprise you.

If expense is a significant deciding factor in your decisions, you might consider avoiding University of Chicago. University of Chicago appears to be our most expensive school for mathematics, at least regarding out of state enrollment. We do have an entire page for the most expensive colleges that might put the cost at University of Chicago into perspective. You may also care to know that mathematics is the 25th most expensive major in the United States, with an average expense of $53,300. To zoom out a little, the most expensive state for mathematics on our list is District of Columbia with tuition and fees at the primary three institutions American University of $49,070, George Washington University at $54,453, and expenses at Georgetown University of $54,453. Even more broadly, the most costly region of the U.S. for mathematics is the New England region which is best demonstrated with Amherst College with a cost of $57,640, Tufts University with a cost of $57,324, and Brown University with a cost of $57,112.

Our cheapest region for mathematics is the Southwest region which is represented by Texas A & M International University with a cost of $13,946, The University of Texas of the Permian Basin with a cost of $5,767, and West Texas A & M University with a cost of $6,960. More optimistically, the most affordable school for mathematics is University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Our comprehensive list of the most affordable universities can be explored here.

In-state learners can anticipate paying in the neighborhood of $10,000 for a degree in mathematics. That cost swells significantly to an average of $22,700 for an out-of-state public-school undergrad. Our choice for the university constituting the best value for mathematics: Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Here you can see our comprehensive list about the schools we believe to be the best value in general. Do know, this list is predicated on out-of-state tuition costs. A discussion of value changes when it comes to in-state tuition, but we do not know where you live (and are not trying to collect that kind of data).

Earnings for mathematics students vary a lot, but two years after finishing the degree graduates will regularly make in the neighborhood of $47,900. There is a lot of variation in earnings potential; top earners can rake in up to $85,900. Even straight out of university, the minimum earning jobs within the mathematics field earn $25,900, which could be worse. The top earning graduates from mathematics studied at Massachusetts Institute of Technology and if you are looking for schools with all of the highest earning graduates, we have that too.

The general diversity of mathematics stands high, ranking within the 92nd percentile of all programs. The university with the highest composite diversity for mathematics is Massachusetts Institute of Technology and here you can find our comprehensive list for the colleges which have the most diversity. The overall financial diversity of Mathematics only sits within the 26th percentile compared to all other majors. Racial diversity is actually above financial diversity, ranking in the 86th percentile. White students make up the largest proportion at 40% of students studying mathematics. Additionally, 65% of undergraduates seeking a mathematics major are men.

The median ranking of mathematics professors is 3.7 stars, a rating that is 7% lower than the average score for every major; which is a subpar score. If you are looking for the most popular mathematics professor in the nation, consider looking up Joel Oberstone from University of San Francisco. It might surprise you, but the best rated professors for mathematics according to students come from George Mason University. As we consider data other than basic rankings it becomes clear that the college possessing the best professors for mathematics is Massachusetts Institute of Technology. One can find more detail on our evolving ranking methodology for the best overall professors here, as well as some of the best professors nationwide.

Finally, the most difficult school to get into for mathematics is Stanford University. While we think of this list more as a novelty, we do have a comprehensive list of the hardest colleges to get into. Although, we hope you believe that looking at the higher education world with a perspective only built on superlatives might create problems. We hope you look at some of our more focused pages on different schools and explore some of our background pages on beneficial details to look out for as your college search develops.
