Military-Friendly Colleges: Math & Science

Created by: MSG Randall High, U.S. Army (ret)

Military friendly math & science colleges provide career opportunities in a wide range of fields.

Military friendly math & science colleges provide opportunities for veterans and active service members interested in careers in product development, research, financial service and more.

Education requirements in math programs and at science schools differ according to the career path being pursued. Professional mathematicians, for example, must have a Ph.D. But a graduate with a bachelor's degree in mathematics could be employed as a financial analyst. In the sciences, academic research jobs typically require a Ph.D., but there are plenty of other career paths. The job categories of food scientist and environmental scientist, which are open to candidates with a bachelor's degree, are expected to see robust growth over the coming decade. Math and science teachers at the elementary and high school levels must have a bachelor's degree and a license.
