I'm a third year student on track to get a BS in Mathematics and a BA in Economics.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The economics was basically to make myself marketable and to prevent the college from making me graduate early. I'm really not interested in it. That's besides the point.

I love almost all fields of math. Combinatorics, geometry, analysis, algebra, numerical methods. I find it all very fascinating and love learning about it all. However, I'm not interested in doing research.

I'm looking for a career in applied math. I'd like to use what I've learned to solve problems. I'm more interested in discrete mathematics (algorithms, graphs, etc), and would love to apply all of this into an industry. I can program a computer, but I don't have any real experience with anything. I never did any relevant internships during the summer.

What options do I have? Am I screwed? Going down an actuarial track is my backup, but that sounds god awful. I'm not interested in finance or economics, but they are all backups.

Any interesting options for a guy who loves math, wants to use it, but doesn't want to stay in Academia or go into finance?
