Math Careers in math

  1. Aug 22, 2006 #1
    This year I’m going to be a senior and I’m going to start applying to graduate programs soon. I’m a pure math major with a philosophy minor. I really would like to do my grad work in set theory, or become a logician. But the career prospects look grim in these fields. Is this the case or am I worrying about nothing. Also I can’t seem to find a school that offers anything in set theory.

    I don't know too much about it, but expert systems in computer science make applied use of mathematical logic.
