We are located in downtown Washington, D.C., close to the White House, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund and the National Academy of Sciences. The greater D.C. area has one of the highest concentrations of mathematicians in non-academic positions in the United States. With organizations such as NASA, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the National Security Agency, the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory, the Federal Reserve and numerous consulting companies and institutes nearby, students can take full advantage of our location to pursue internships and professional opportunities.
Why Math Matters
Mathematics students develop a unique combination of analytical and technical skills along with mental agility that make them highly sought after by many employers and professional schools. Our graduates are prepared for a rapidly changing world and successfully pursue a wide range of careers as consultants, actuaries, researchers, financial engineers, educators, computer programmers, data scientists, lawyers, physicians and more. Almost every agency and branch of government employs mathematicians in various capacities.
Whatever path you choose, the GW Department of Mathematics can provide the intellectual challenges, skills and opportunities to get you there.
"When people hear ‘math,’ they think about spending all their time doing math theory and proofs on the chalkboard. But there are so many ways to apply math. You can be a stock trader or a game designer or an astronaut."
